About Texas Young Lawyers Association
The Texas Young Lawyers Association (TYLA) is commonly referred to as the “public service arm” of the State Bar of Texas. TYLA’s primary 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.
TYLA’s programs often offer information to members of the general public about a legal topic; other projects are designed to assist Texas lawyers in developing and maintaining their legal practices. Still others are directed toward underserved members of our community, including the homeless, the elderly, and members of our military.
Organized in 1930, as a department of the State Bar of Texas, all licensed Texas lawyers 36 years old or younger or in their first five years of practice, regardless of age, are automatically members.
