Young Lawyers Committee

The Committee on Young Lawyers is the voice for new lawyers in New York City. Membership is open to New York City Bar members admitted to practice for 8 years or less. Our mission is to promote leadership in our profession by laying a practical foundation for pursuing a rewarding legal career.

We execute our mission through professional development initiatives, public service, and special outreach events. We organize the New York City Bar’s Annual National Moot Court Competition. All members participate in problem drafting, brief grading, and recruiting our pool of local judges for the Competition. We sponsor continuing legal education programs that benefit young lawyers. We sponsor an annual Fall Reception to encourage all young lawyers to actively participate in the New York City Bar’s committees. We also host biannual dinners (generally in December and May) to give our members a chance to interact informally. We partner with other bar associations to promote young lawyer initiatives. In sum, we’re committed to excellence in the ethical practice of law. If you’re interested in joining, or wish to learn more about our Committee’s efforts, please contact us.
