Young Lawyers Division

The PBA Young Lawyers Division (YLD) is composed of:

  • All PBA members who have not reached their 40th birthday before the PBA Annual Meeting
  • All PBA members who are 40 or older that have been practicing 10 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.
