AYLA Day of Service – Monday, January 21
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Austin Young Lawyers Association will coordinate its fifth annual Day of Service project in Austin on Monday, January 21, 2019.
This local project is modeled after the national Martin Luther King Day of Service, which is intended to transform Dr. King’s life and teachings into community service that helps solve social problems. AYLA invites the Austin legal community to sign up for one or more of the events available for the Day of Service. In addition, please encourage family and friends to volunteer as well.

AYLA Project Spotlight: Community First Village
This year, AYLA has selected Community First! Village as our nonprofit partner. Community First! Village is “a 27-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas.”
AYLA’s quarterly pro bono legal clinics will allow us to develop a longer-term connection with a nonprofit and its specific clients. This year we will be organizing four clinics at CFV: October, January on MLK Day, a longer Legal Services Clinic in April, and a final clinic in June.
