YLS Committees

These committees create and manage various projects which offer tailored volunteer opportunities. Some volunteer commitments involve limited time and activity while others involve monthly participation. In addition, the YLS sponsors social activities, which are publicized in the Multnomah Lawyer newsletter and on our calendar.

If you are interested in getting involved in a YLS committee, call the MBA at 503.222.3275 or fill out a volunteer form.
