Welcome to the Jackson Young Lawyers Association

Founded in 1936, the Jackson Young Lawyers Association strives to strengthen the bond between attorneys in the Jackson, Mississippi metropolitan area by emphasizing community, education, and service. JYL members come from widely different backgrounds and practice in virtually every field of law — from family law to corporate law, real estate to criminal defense. We all share the same goal: to improve the quality of life for our young lawyers and to serve Jackson and the Metro area.
