YLD Bridge the Gap

This committee is responsible for organizing the Bridge the Gap seminar held in Des Moines each spring. Bridge the Gap is a two-day "nuts and bolts” seminar that provides information on a wide variety of topics at introductory to intermediate levels. The seminar is unique in that, for a low fee, one can obtain all federal, state and ethics CLE requirements. Bridge the Gap is one of the largest annual seminars sponsored by the Iowa State Bar Association.


Members of the Bridge the Gap Committee serve on one or more sub-committees to assist in arranging and hosting the seminar. Committee members are required to attend two dinner meetings, September and November, in addition to completing their sub-committee projects. Attendance at the entire seminar to assist in its presentation is also required.

  • YLD launches "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Pledge" for Iowa's legal employers

    The Iowa State Bar Association Young Lawyers Division (YLD) is committed to increasing diversity, equity and inclusion within Iowa’s legal profession. Many lawyers want to be part of the solution but lack direction on what attorneys can do to help make the profession more diverse, equitable and inclusive.

    Therefore, the YLD Diversity Committee has created a new “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Pledge,” consisting of voluntary, concrete action items that legal employers can take to be part of this important work. The pledge will begin tomorrow, April 1, and will conclude on April 1, 2022. You or your legal employer can start at any time, and those who complete the pledge will be recognized at the ISBA Annual Meeting in 2022.
