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 36 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 28% 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.
The YLD recently completed work on a Disaster Assistance Manual which, according to the manual's introduction, "was created to equip volunteer attorneys with the information they need to effectively provide pro bono services following a disaster. The manual may be read quickly and we encourage you to read the document in its entirety to familiarize yourself with the Young Lawyers Division's volunteer program." You can view it by clicking here.
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.
