Who We Are
The Texas Young Lawyers Association, organized in 1930, is 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 of TYLA. TYLA’s funding comes directly from the State Bar and grants from various not-for-profit entities, so there are no additional dues to pay to be a member.
What We Do
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.
TYLA focuses 100% of its efforts and funding to serving Texas communities to enrich and improve lives. We thank you for visiting this site and for your service to your community.
