Welcome to the Young Professionals Network Page!
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. 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:
- AHLA's Young Professionals Council. Members of the Young Professionals Council (see below) 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.
- Join a Practice Group (PG). 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.
- Young Professionals Toolkit. Need advice or direction on various topics relevant to Young Professionals? Access the Young Professionals Toolkit to view professional development webinars, access a justification toolkit, or read curated content from AHLA Connections magazine.
- Ask-a-YP Leader. The Ask-a-YP Leader service is handled by AHLA leaders who serve on the Young Professionals Council (YPC). If you are a student or young professional and want to ask a question, complete this form and a member of the YPC will be in touch within the week.sk
