As President of the Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division, Paige was committed to ensuring that the YLD take the lead on technology issues facing law students and lawyers. Under her leadership, the YLD first begin considering a proposed rule change that would allow young lawyers to take the mandatory Practicing with Professionalism course online instead of requiring what is sometimes expensive, long-distance travel to fulfill this requirement in their first year of practice. The YLD ultimately made this recommendation, which was approved by the Florida Bar Board of Governors, and ultimately, the Florida Supreme Court.
In addition, during Paige’s presidency, the YLD worked on several efforts to provide appropriate mentoring and training to young lawyers who immediately hang a shingle upon graduation from law school. One of its projects was to encourage lawyers to consider Resident at Law programs, developed by a Board of Governors member, which provide new law graduates with practical, hands-on legal experience and mentorship opportunities in which they practice at a law firm on a temporary basis for a salary, with the encouragement and expectation that they will participate in bar activities. Stetson law school has implemented a program that is based on this model.
