Young Lawyers Division
The YLD is a dynamic community and professional service organization of the State Bar of Arizona, specifically created for new lawyers who are under 37 years of age, or have been in practice for five years or less. Presently, the Division has approximately 4,000 active members in the state, which constitutes nearly 33% of the total in-state active Bar membership. With a membership this large, you may be asking yourself, "How do I get involved?" The answer is simple - Join a YLD committee.
Social nights are held about once a month at various locations throughout the valley. This is a great opportunity for new members to network with experienced lawyers, sister organizations, and corporate sponsors.
Here are some of the most recent locations the YLD and sponsoring sections have held their events:
April 28, 2013 - McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park: 1 - 4 p.m.
March 21, 2013 - Cooper Blues, Dowtown Phoenix
January 2013 - Social Tap Pub & Grill, Old Town Scottsdale
