About HYLA

The Houston Young Lawyers Association (“HYLA”) is a dynamic young professionals' organization and specialty bar association. Our membership is diverse and consists of attorneys who are 36 years old and under as of June 1, or in their first five years of practice, as well as law students.

Our mission is to learn, lead, network, and serve.

Each year, we offer an exciting lineup of social networking events, CLEs, and leadership and volunteer opportunities. HYLA was founded in 1937 as the Houston Junior Bar Association and has a rich tradition of community involvement and leadership in the Houston legal community.

Learn. HYLA hosts panel discussions and monthly CLEs on topics that are keyed in on issues important to and faced by young lawyers and law students.

Lead. HYLA provides opportunities to get involved and lead, including over thirty active committees and the HYLA Leadership Academy, for which approximately 20 young lawyers are selected to meet monthly with community leaders and develop and execute a community service project.

Network. In addition to networking happy hours, HYLA hosts signature events including the Membership Party, Evening with the Judiciary, Holiday Party, and Crawfish Boil that connect HYLA members with local leaders, members of the judiciary, potential clients, potential employers, and lifelong friends.

Serve. HYLA provides a variety of ways to give back, including pro bono opportunities and meaningful and fun community service projects.
