Fifth Annual AYLA Runway for Justice
For the fifth year in a row, the Austin Young Lawyers Association fashion show will return on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 6 p.m. at 800 Congress Ave.
This year’s show will showcase both male and female lawyers modeling casual, business and evening looks. We will serve champagne, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres!
The AYLA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, organizes many charitable endeavors benefiting the greater Austin community, including AYLA Reindeer Games and Legal Clinics at the Community First Village.
If you would like to sponsor, or be involved with the show, please contact Debbie Kelly. To download the Runway for Justice Sponsor Letter & Form CLICK HERE. To download the Runway for Justice In Kind Sponsor Letter CLICK HERE.

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.
