By:  Jay Forester, North/West Texas ABA Rep (District 26)

The American Bar Association recently held its annual meeting in New York City. This meeting was a great opportunity to interact with and learn from bar leaders throughout the country. The annual meeting also included the presentation of yearly awards and, perhaps unsurprisingly, TYLA was awarded First Place in the 2016-2017 Awards of Achievement Comprehensive category!

Remember, all licensed Texas lawyers 36 or younger or in their first five years of practice, regardless of age, are automatically members of TYLA. Importantly, this success belongs to every TYLA member, including you! We thank you for your support, service to your community, and, frankly, making our job as your ABA reps look easy.

Note, ABA local affiliate reports are due in September and we want to highlight the great work you and your local bar affiliates are doing nationally. Please submit your reports by September 8, 2017, to:
