You can count on the City Bar to be with you very step of the way to help you advance your professional goals, fulfill your personal interests and serve the public good.

The City Bar carries on a wide range of professional and public service activities that not only enhance the legal profession, but also make a difference in people’s lives across the country and around the globe -- all while strengthening your skills and value as an attorney.

And as an added benefit, CLE is free for newly admitted attorneys (admitted 2020 – 2022). CLE programs that are four hours or less (live programs, live webcasts and on-demand programs), as well as the City Bar’s Bridge-the-Gap program are included in City Bar membership for newly admitted attorneys.

Membership gives you immediate access to a host of resources relevant at every stage of your career and you’ll have the opportunity to network with New York’s brightest legal minds.
