YLS Board of Governors On-line Election ends June 3, 2015

Don’t wait in line at the Annual Meeting to vote.  Click here to vote today.

May 28th from 5 to 7 p.m. All Attorneys are invited to attend….

The Florida Bar’s Young Lawyers’ Division (“YLD”) has declared the month of May as “Health and Wellness Month”.  During May, the YLD has initiated a number of projects geared at bringing awareness to the mental and physical stress often associated with the practice of law.

The Young Lawyers’ Section of the Jacksonville Bar Association (“YLS”) has organized an event during May in the spirit of Health and Wellness Month.  The YLS challenges YOU to take a break from the daily grind, walk away from your desk and enjoy some good-natured fun with friends and colleagues!

On May 28 between 5:00 and 7:00, attorneys of all ages are invited to come out to the empty lot adjacent to the Laura Street Trio for friendly competition in dodgeball and kickball, as well as other low-impact activities.  Please join us in the heart of downtown for this inaugural event for some fun physical activity after work.  After all, it may be the only opportunity of your career to hurl a ball at a judge or your opposing counsel.  Non-alcoholic refreshments will be available and athletic dress is recommended.

Between work, family, and outside professional obligations, it is hard for attorneys to make time to focus on their physical health and well-being.  Please join both the YLD and the YLS in taking a well-deserved break to have some fun.  The YLS is working on providing some fun surprises that you will surely not want to miss.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Adam Edgecombe at adam.edgecombe@qpwblaw.com, Jessica Mathis at jmathis@wickersmith.com, or Christian George at christian.george@akerman.com.
