Amanda Kuryluk was elected as the co-chair of the Albany County Bar Association’s Young Lawyer’s Committee (“YLC”). As part of the Bar Association, the YLC has two major focuses: first, for young lawyers to support the diverse programs, projects, and initiatives of the greater Bar Association, and second, for young lawyers to develop and create programs that will enhance the mission of the Bar Association. The purpose of the YLC is to ease the transition from law school into the world of legal practice, while serving the needs of our members and the capital region community. The YLC also exposes young lawyers and law students not only to current issues in various practice areas but also to legal professionals such as judges and practice leaders through its many events and programs.
As a co-chair, Amanda works with the rest of the Bar Association in planning and sponsoring social networking events, Continued Legal Education Seminars, and opportunities for young lawyers to receive mentoring from more seasoned attorneys. The YLC also sponsors volunteer events. This past winter, the YLC sponsored a volunteer night at the Regional Food Bank. The YLC is also co-sponsoring the Bar Association’s 20th Annual Law Day Run for Domestic Violence being held on May 1, 2014 at the Crossings in Colonie. The YLC is planning a habitat for humanity day for the upcoming summer.
So far Amanda is enjoying her role with the YLC. She enjoys helping new attorneys become more involved with the community.
