Barristers/Young Attorneys Section

The Barristers/Young Attorneys Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association (Barristers/Young Attorneys) has been active for over 70 years and continues to bring professional development and opportunity-related services to young lawyers and the Los Angeles County community. If you are a member of LACBA and are younger than 36 years of age or have been admitted to practice for 5 years or less, you qualify as a Barrister.

The mission of Barristers/Young Attorneys is to provide opportunities for new and young lawyers to develop legal skills, build a professional reputation, network beyond each member's workplace and promote public service projects. Barristers/Young Attorneys activities also provide a forum for new and young lawyers to develop leadership skills and to interact with judges, experienced attorneys, as well as other Barristers/Young Attorneys members.

The Barristers/Young Attorneys Section (BYA) is proud to support LACBA’s Counsel for Justice (CFJ) and its AIDS Walk LA Team, which is participating in the digital/remote AIDS Walk Los Angeles 2021.  All proceeds raised by CFJ’s AIDS Walk LA Team will go directly to CFJ in support of the AIDS Legal Services Project.  Please consider joining and fundraising with our team.  Donations can also be made here

For more information on CFJ and its legal services projects, please visit the CFJ page on LACBA’s website, and make sure to follow BYA’s social media for updates on how you can get involved.
