The ABA YLD Minorities in the Profession Committee publishes quarterly newsletters as well as 101/201 Practice Series articles on our website. Submissions for the newsletter can be shorter pieces (approx. 250 - 450 words) about a recent news event, recent court decision, etc. Our 101/201 Practice Series articles are online resources for new lawyers covering basic training in both substantive and practical aspects of law practice. These articles are typically around 600 words. While Practice Series articles are longer, and tend to be more substantive in nature, it is important to note that these are not “law review” articles. They can vary in terms of topic, but should have some nexus to the work of the Minorities in the Profession Committee.
Alisha Lubin is the Vice Chair and Content Editor for the Minorities in the Profession Committee of the ABA's Young Lawyers Division. For additional information about topics, submissions, etc., send an email to Lubin, .  Click to view a copy of the  Fall newsletter.

You are invited to submit articles for consideration. Original materials, previously unpublished, can be submitted on a rolling basis.  Articles need not be longer than 600-800 words.
