The purpose of the Young Professionals Network is to provide opportunities for all young professionals to network, enhance professional development skills, and develop leadership abilities. Become a member of this Community.
Members of the Young Professionals Council plan and organize networking events and brown bag webinars, develop career and professional resources, facilitate involvement opportunities for young professional members in Practice Groups, pro bono, Public Interest, and the Mentoring program.
There are many ways to become more involved in AHLA and to "be found" by AHLA leaders looking for assistance with projects. If you want to become more engaged in the Association, there is a place for you.
Find a Practice Group (PG) and Get Involved: AHLA's 16 PGs provide many opportunities for young professionals to contribute – through research, writing, planning, social media, and speaking. Each group has a Vice Chair of Membership who will be glad to talk with you about opportunities. Visit the specific PG webpages for more information.
Participate in the AHLA Mentoring Program: Create your profile. Become a mentor for a law student or health lawyer just starting out. Find your own mentor and connect with an AHLA member who can share what it's like to be in the health law field.
Connect with others in the Community: This online community forum provides members with an opportunity to connect with one another. In addition, networking breakfasts and dinners are held at various in-person programs. Visit the specific program webpages for more information about these events. Networking events are also held at various law schools and law firms around the country. If you are interested in helping to organize an event in your area, contact us at YP@healthlawyers.org.
