Cameron County Young Lawyers Association

The Cameron County Young Lawyers Association, also known as CCYLA, is a group of dynamitic young lawyers changing the community they live in. CCYLA members consist of lawyers who are 36 years old and under, as well as lawyers who have been practicing for five years or less. Its membership includes lawyers from all types of law practices, such as solo practitioners, small to large firms, in-house counsel, the public sector and the non-profit sector as well.

CCYLA provides its members an opportunity to become leaders in their community, network in both professional and social atmospheres and experience all that the practice of law has to offer.  

From fun mixers to mentoring students, CCYLA has something for all its members. We encourage you to join and experience the tradition that has become CCYLA.  For a membership application please click on the Membership Application tab.
