Description

Among the New York City Bar's first activities in the 1870's was a campaign to defeat corrupt politicians and judges at the polls and to establish standards of conduct for those in the legal profession.

The City Bar continues to work at political, legal and social reform, and maintaining high ethical standards for the legal profession. We also continue to implement innovative means by which the disadvantaged may be helped. Much of this work is accomplished through the City Bar's more than 160 committees, each charged to consider a specific area of law or the profession.

To serve our 22,000 members, the Association strives to move ahead in many areas. The Library is the largest member-funded law library in the country, and provides members with a "gateway" to on-line services, including free use of LexisNexis and WestLaw, while continuing to provide more traditional library services. Our Small Law Firm center, Career Management program and other benefits are constantly evolving to serve members needs. Over 150 continuing legal education programs are presented annually.

The public good remains one of the Association's highest priorities. The Legal Referral Service, jointly sponsored by the Association and the New York County Lawyers' Association, provides an array of services directly aimed at serving the needs of the public. The City Bar Justice Center identifies the most pressing legal concerns of New York's neediest and uses novel approaches to address them, often involving community participation.
