YLD By-Laws


The Pima County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division (YLD) is a group of attorneys who have

been in practice less than 5 years and/or are under the age of 36. By joining the Pima County Bar

you are automatically a member of the YLD -- and at no additional cost.  In addition to membership

in the Young Lawyers Division, PCBA membership affords opportunities for networking, professional

growth and a myriad of community service programs in which you can participate.


Although the PCBA YLD is a division of the Pima County Bar Association, it is governed by its own 

Board of Directors. The Board meets at 5:30 PM each month, except June, July & December. ALL


more information, please call any of the board members. Flyers with information about upcoming YLD

Board meetings are emailed to ALL young lawyers on the YLD listserve.

YLD CLE Programs are typically scheduled on the third Thursday of each month, except June, July

young lawyer members, law students, and those awaiting bar results; $15 for PCBA non-YLD

members and $30 for non-PCBA members. For more information, or to suggest a program, please
