New Lawyers Division

The purpose of the New Lawyers Division is to stimulate interest and commitment among trial lawyers with less than 10 years experience, generate new members for CAOC, provide public services focusing on the preservation of the civil justice system, trial by jury and civic-oriented projects, foster professional relationships and assist members of CAOC in the early stages of their careers.
 
NLD encourages social networking, continuing legal education, scholarship, and increased legal proficiency by developing and advancing affordable programs, materials, services, and products specifically designed to assist and benefit new lawyers. NLD provides a statewide discussion forum and gives new lawyers a unified voice within CAOC. It also provides a system of networking with new and experienced attorneys to ensure that the next generation of CAOC members and their leadership are dedicated to the organization's mission, understand the evolution of CAOC and embrace the diversity of California.
