In this Special Report, Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division President Gordon Glover and Young Lawyers Division President-Elect Designate Katherine Hurst Miller speak with Laurence Colletti about their division, what young attorneys aspire to today, and what to expect in the coming year. Gordon explains that their division has 26,000 members and that young lawyers make up a quarter of all lawyers in the state. The division hosts monthly webinars, affiliate outreach conferences, and basic continuing legal education courses for their attorneys. Katherine explains their training succession plan for the president-elect designate and Gordon elaborates on the two themes of his presidency. They also analyze why more law students want to start their own practices coming out of law school and reveal that criminal, personal injury, and family law are the most common types of firms that young lawyers are establishing. Gordon and Katherine close the interview with a discussion of The Young Lawyers Division Moot Court Competition held at the annual conference and provide some insight into the case being debated and the teams that are attending this year.
