The Dallas Association of Young Lawyers (DAYL) is the only bar organization in Dallas dedicated exclusively to the needs of young lawyers and the community service projects they are most passionate about.

They are supported by a diverse membership of approximately 3,000 lawyers. This organization aims to improve the quality of life for all young lawyers through various initiatives designed to educate, support, challenge, and entertain. DAYL serves the Dallas community through public service projects that young lawyers find meaningful. These missions take many forms, but they all allow young lawyers to select community service opportunities that are most meaningful to them.

The DAYL comprises young lawyers of diverse racial, ethnic, and gender backgrounds and practice sizes and areas, including solo and small firm practitioners, large firm practitioners, in-house lawyers, government lawyers, and law students. Members volunteer their time and talents to organize approximately 150 projects each year and contribute thousands of volunteer hours.
