As part of New York City’s Key to NYC program, all visitors to the New York City Bar (as well as staff in the building) are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. For more information, and for the latest on how the City Bar is addressing the pandemic, click here.
In addition to the hundreds of events held at the City Bar, we host the annual Professional Development Workshop Series. From January –June, members can attend these workshops that focus on topics like leadership, communication, time-management, and client developments. There is no charge for members to attend, and most workshops provide CLE credit. We also hold programs for attorneys seeking to re-enter or transition within the profession. If you want to start your own practice and have some questions, check out our small law firm center or contact the center here.
We also hold programs on a variety of topics from transitioning to Lawyers Connect, which includes a series of bi-monthly social events, monthly eNewsletter and other online features.
