Amanda Jacobsen & Volusia County Bar Young Lawyers Division Receive Best Grant Presentation at 2014 Affiliate Outreach Conference:
Associate Attorney Amanda Jacobsen attended The Young Lawyers Division (YLD) Affiliate Outreach Conference January 17-18, 2014. The Conference is held for all Young Lawyer Representatives to gather and discuss the great things occurring in their county as well as present grant proposals to a panel of Judges.
Amanda J. Jacobsen, YLD Rep. and Kayla Hathaway, YLD Elect
Presenting on behalf of Volusia County Young Lawyers Division
Ms. Jacobsen's grant proposal was for the Volusia County Young Lawyers Division to host a luncheon for young lawyers to discuss the peaks and pitfalls of the new attorney who decides to hang their own shingle. At the luncheon, attendees would be presented with YLD items to take with them as a reminder that the YLD supports them and that they should be afraid to reach out if they have questions. The grant award amounts won't be announced for several weeks, but Amanda and co-presenter, Kayla Hathaway, received the Best Grant Presentation out of more than 50 YLD Chapters that presented at the conference.
