The New York County Lawyers Association, located in the heart of the New York World Financial Center, is one of the largest, most influential bar associations in the country, and has pioneered some of the most far-reaching and tangible reforms in American jurisprudence and public policy. This is possible because new lawyers, established lawyers, educators, judges and public sector lawyers contribute to the collective brain trust that is the New York County Lawyers, where everyone has a voice. From its 145 founders, more than 8000 Lawyers from New York City are joined by lawyers from China, Florida, the UK, Canada, California, and all over the world to create a legal network of knowledge sharing, relationship building and business development that is second to none.
