Tallahassee Bar Association Young Lawyer Section receives President’s Choice Grant Award

The Young Lawyers Section of the Tallahassee Bar Association received the President’s Choice Grant Award at The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Affiliate Outreach Conference, which was held in Tampa in January 2014, for its “Thunderdome Tallahassee” grant proposal. The Legal Aid Foundation is spearheading the initiative in order to train and assist a select group of young attorneys in addressing the persistent backlog of family law and other pro bono cases in the area. A sustained training period, collaborative environment and the early assignment of pending cases sets the project apart from prior initiatives. The Young Lawyers Section of the Tallahassee Bar Association will receive the $3,000.00 grant from The Florida Bar in furtherance of the initiative.
