Yolanda Young To Speak at Stanford Law and Mid-Atlantic BLSA Convention


Yolanda Young will be speaking at the Mid-Atlantic Black Law Students Association’s convention in Philadelphia on Saturday, February, 21, 2009, at 9:30 a.m.

Her Topic:  

How To Avoid Being A Failed Lawyer; We Shouldn’t All End Up Suing Our Law Firms!


Yolanda Young will also be a featured speaker at Building a Better Legal Profession Naitonal Conference For Student Leaders on April 3-5, 2009 at Stanford Law School.

The objective of this conference is to build a national law student movement for workplace reforms in large law firms, including increased diversity in promotion and retention, increased pro bono commitment, and better work/life balance.  This conference will bring together the leaders of the organization from all over the country as well as activists, journalists, educators, and practitioners who are sympathetic to the agenda to discuss how to define organizational goals and priorities for the coming year.  The schedule of events will include panels, workshops, networking opportunities, a book release event, and much more. The conference will also serve as an opportunity to provide updates regarding ongoing projects and to share our most recent initiative — an investigation of the impact of layoffs and firm cutbacks on law students.
