Gwynne A. Young Delivers Florida Bar President's Message

Tallahassee, Fla. – Carlton Fields’ Tampa Shareholder and 64th President of The Florida Bar, Gwynne A. Young, delivered the July President’s Message from the Bar’s headquarters in Tallahassee. In her message, Young introduced other bar leaders with who she will work closely with this year. She reaffirmed Bar members and other viewers of the bar’s number one priority: to ensure adequate and necessary funding for the court system, for both the judiciary and the clerks of court.

Young also shared that together, with the Florida Bar Foundation, she will work to find solutions to the legal services funding crisis. Other action items include continued commitment and promotion of diversity and inclusion in all aspects for the profession and the justice system; active contact with women, minorities and other diverse groups to promote application to bar appointments; and increased focus on the bar’s “The Vote’s in YOUR COURT” program – a public education program designed to help voters learn about the merit selection and retention system and make informed decisions in the November general election when three Supreme Court justices and 15 DCA judges will be on the ballot.
