About the ABA YLD
With more than 130,000 members, The American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division (ABA YLD) is the largest young lawyer organization in the world. The Young Lawyers Division is the ABA’s home for the new attorney, giving members tools to navigate the early years of a career, opportunities to network, and resources to grow skill-sets.
About the HNBA YLD
The Hispanic National Bar Association Young Lawyers Division (HNBA-YLD) encourages young lawyers to work together on projects for their community and for their profession, and to address the needs and interests of newly admitted attorneys. The HNBA-YLD is committed to representing the newest members of the profession effectively, ensuring that it reflects the society it serves, and providing young lawyers with the tools and opportunities for success. Individual membership is open to HNBA members under 36 years of age or admitted to practice for five years or fewer. There are no additional membership dues to join the HNBA-YLD.
About the WBA YLD
The Washington Bar Association, one of the first African American Bar associations in the country, was formed in 1925. The WBA was created simultaneously with the National Bar Association and is an affiliate chapter of that organization. Like the NBA, the WBA is concerned with the advancement of jurisprudence, self benefit, group enhancement in a racially exclusive society and judicial system, and group protection. The Young Lawyers Division was established in 1997 as a division of the Washington Bar Association. WBA members qualify for YLD status if they are 36 years of age or younger, or have been licensed to practice for five years or less, regardless of age.
