Young Lawyers Division


The Young Lawyers Division is made up of lawyers practicing across every substantive area within the defense bar. The YLD mission remains the same each year-providing its members the best professional development, quality CLE programs and networking opportunities.

The cornerstones of the Young Lawyers Division are the excellent annual Litigation Basics seminars it sponsors each year. The programming is designed to teach associates and young partners how to refine their legal skills and take their practice to a higher level.

In addition, the Young Lawyers Division sponsors a charity softball tournament every year that benefits Southwest Human Development, raising over $10,000 annually. The YLD also has their own list serve to promote communication and participation at events for the young lawyers. 

You must be an AADC member to join the YLD. To become an AADC member contact Executive Director, Doreen Myles, at admin@azadc.org or 602-743-3700 for an application or print one from the website.
