The Annual Convention

Every year, at the KBA Annual Convention, the Young Lawyers Section presents the “Young Lawyer Convention”.  Held on Day Two of the Convention (Thursday), the Young Lawyer Conference features a full day of programming that is offered by young attorneys, for young attorneys.  These programs are specifically designed to cover a broad range of practice areas, and the specific issues faced by young lawyers.  Many are geared specifically to lawyers in their first five years of practice.  We also welcome the KBA’s newest practitioners to the Conference – those attorneys attending the New Lawyer Program on Day One of the Convention.   

This year, the KBA Annual Convention is being held at the Galt House in Louisville on June 6 -8th.  For a complete list of the CLE programs being offered at this year’s Convention, please visit  YLS-sponsored programs are indicated with the YLS logo.  Please note that YLS members receive a $150 discount off their registration fee!  Visit register.
