About the Law Student Division of The Florida Bar
The mission of the Law Student Division of The Florida Bar (“LSD”) is to assist The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division (“YLD”) in furthering the goals of The Florida Bar. The LSD is designed to encourage interest in, and participation by, Division members in the purposes of the YLD. The LSD connects law students to YLD members, through a variety of activities and projects designed to be of interest and assistance to Division members, and engages in such activities that tend to further the best interests of the legal profession.
The LSD, in conjunction with the YLD, coordinates activities for law students providing discussion and free interchange of ideas relative to the duties, responsibilities, and problems faced by members of the legal profession. The LSD and YLD also provide mentoring opportunities, which provide professionalism training in order to enhance the integrity and reputation of the legal professional. The LSD is encouraged to aid the YLD in serving the public, particularly those persons outside the legal profession, through state-wide and local community service projects and pro bono service. As a liaison between law schools and the YLD, the LSD promotes diversity in all areas of the study and practice of law. The LSD stimulates and encourages the interest and participation of law students in the YLD and The Florida Bar.

Message from the Law Student Division President, Allie Menegakis
Welcome to The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Law Student Division! It is an honor to serve as your president. Our Division works to facilitate a smooth transition between law school and the practice of law in Florida. We work with The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division, local bar associations, and practicing attorneys to provide networking, mentoring, legal education, and community service opportunities to Law Student Division members. We have a chapter at each law school in the state of Florida.
Since our founding in 2007, the Law Student Division has grown tremendously. In the last year alone, thousands of Florida law students have joined and have benefited from networking opportunities, mentoring, and educational programs that are exclusive to our members. As president this year, I hope to develop the Division even further by expanding our mentoring program to each law school statewide, creating more networking and educational opportunities, and introducing new events for law students at The Florida Bar Conventions.
