The Young Lawyers Division
(YLD) of the Pennsylvania Bar Association is composed of:
PBA members who have not reached their 38th birthday before the PBA
Annual Meeting, or
PBA members who are 38 or older that have been practicing five years or fewer.
Membership in the YLD is automatic for lawyers who meet the criteria and have paid the
regular PBA annual dues — there is no additional fee to be a member of the YLD.
