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
