AUSTIN—The Texas Young Lawyers Association will host the 2022 Western States Regional Summit on May 19-22 at the Hotel Paso del Norte in El Paso, Texas.

The summit is designed to foster networking, information sharing, and to encourage education, leadership, and collaboration among young lawyers. Registration is open to all lawyers. Past attendees have come from Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Oklahoma, and South Dakota. The summit is co-sponsored by the State Bar of Texas, the Colorado Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, and the State Bar of New Mexico Young Lawyers Division.

The summit will provide up to 12 hours of CLE credit (credit pending).
