The San Antonio Young Lawyers Association, better known as SAYLA, was formed in 1948 (unofficially) and 1950 (officially) as the San Antonio Junior Bar Association, an entity of the San Antonio Bar Association. In 1974, the members of the Junior Bar officially formed the corporate structure that is now SAYLA.  (See more about the early history on the About SAYLA page.)  SAYLA continues the great traditions formed by the Junior Bar by providing opportunities and avenues for young and newly licensed attorneys to network with other attorneys and non-attorneys, socialize, learn and earn CLE credits, give back to the community, and enjoy their chosen profession.  We hope that this website is helpful to you.  Please use the menu at the top to navigate the site, learn more about SAYLA, become a member, renew your membership, find out about upcoming events, and more.



SAYLA COVID-19 Information 

In an effort to provide our members information about the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have put together a page with resources about the COVID-19 Response in Bexar County and the City of San Antonio.  Please click here for more information.  


With assistance of a generous grant from the Texas Bar Foundation, SAYLA has produced an educational video for Texas students about the 2020 Census, its Constitutional foundations, and its impact on their communities.  For more information and to find supporting documents for educators, visit our 2020 Census page HERE.
