Houston Young Lawyers Association ("HYLA") was founded in 1937, when Lewis W. Cutrer, Arthur P. Terrell and Roland Voight started the Houston Junior Bar Association, to give "the young lawyers an opportunity to better know one another and to informally exchange ideas regarding the profession." In 1939, the Houston Bar Association ("HBA"), headed by James S. Bracewell, asked the young lawyers to join its organization as the Junior Bar Section. Although the young lawyers were a section of the HBA, they had to have their own officers and committees.
