Texas Young Lawyers Association

Who We Are
The Texas Young Lawyers Association, originally organized in 1930, is a department of the State Bar of Texas. All licensed Texas Lawyers who are 36 years old or younger or who are in their first five years of licensure, regardless of age, are automatically members of TYLA. TYLA's funding comes directly from the State Bar, so there are no additional dues to pay to be a member. Click here to view the TYLA Bylaws.

What We Do
TYLA is commonly referred to as the "public service arm" of the State Bar. TYLA's main purposes are to facilitate the administration of justice, foster respect for the law, and advance the role of the legal profession in serving the public. Our programs are designed to assist Texas attorneys in their practice of law and to provide public legal education services to Texans.

How To Become Involved
All of our programs are accomplished through the volunteer efforts of our membership, with the cooperation of our local affiliate young lawyers associations. To be an active part of TYLA, simply use our on-line registration and sign-up forms to help with a committee or project. Click here to get started.
