HSBA Young Lawyers Division

About Us

Young Lawyers Division (YLD) is automatic for all HSBA members until the end of the calendar year in which you turn 36 years old or if you have been in practice less than five years anywhere. See our Bylaws for more information.

The YLD aims to provide its members with opportunities for professional development, to promote camaraderie among members, and to equip members with the skills to grow, thrive, and promote the public welfare.

We invite and encourage members to take an active role in the YLD! Contact us at [email protected] with questions, comments, or suggestions. Feel free to join us at our monthly meetings. 

The YLD is a proud affiliate of the Young Lawyers Division of the American Bar Association (ABA). For more information regarding the ABA YLD activities and resources, see the ABA YLD website.
