Young Lawyers Division (YLD) is for emerging legal professionals committed to the mission of the Anti-Defamation League – to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. YLD emphasizes the important legal issues of ADL through opportunities to connect with and learn from key legal lay and professional ADL leadership.

YLD Initiatives include:

  • In Brief - In Brief are briefings geared towards the Young Lawyers Division to get an in depth perspective on the legal work and issues surrounding ADL. Featured speakers have included Emily Bazelon (columnist and author), Dahlia Lithwick (Slate.com), Elie Mystal (Above the Law) and Sally Kohn (FOX News).
  • Securing Justice Soiree – The Securing Justice Soiree brings together emerging legal professionals following the renowned Edward Brodsky Legal Conference. The Securing Justice Soiree provides an opportunity for guests of the Brodsky Conference the opportunity to socialize and discuss the conference with their peers.
  • Civil Rights Policy Debate – Every year, the national ADL Civil Rights Division selects a policy topic for each region to debate. YLD Supporters and community members are invited to participate by researching and lead the conversation on which side the New York Region should vote on to influence the national position.
