Photography Policy

New York City Bar Association
Policy on Photography

The New York City Bar Association is proud of its landmark building. City Bar members may photograph the exterior and interior of the House of the Association, provided that the photos are not used to: (a) suggest an implicit endorsement by the Association or in any other way misrepresent the nature of an individual’s or entity’s role in and/or relationship with the Association; or (b) exploit the Association, its name, logo or other identifying features or marks for commercial purposes.

Members may request permission to take photographs in the Association by contacting the Customer Relations Department at (212) 382-6663. In their conversation with Customer Service, members may request to use such photos for commercial purposes so long as the name and the logo are not in the photos. Persons wishing to take photos inside the Association’s premises must arrange a time convenient for the Association by contacting the Customer Service Department, and may not use equipment other than a camera and stand without the permission of the Association.

In addition, members who meet with clients at the Association may use photos of the Association to advertise the location of their meetings as long as the name or logo of the Association is not displayed. Particularly, when advertising the location of client meetings, the image of the Association (excluding logo and name) and its address of 42 West 44th Street, New York, New York, may be provided.

Participants of the Virtual Law Firm Program may use photos of the Association as long as the name or logo of the Association is not displayed, but must continue to provide the correct mailing address of 43 West 43rd Street, New York, New York, including their suite number. In order to help their clients locate the entry of the building, members may advertise that the “Meeting Entrance is located at 42 West 44th Street, New York, New York”.

The City Bar reserves the right to refuse the taking or publication of photographs at its sole discretion.

Thank you for adhering to this and all other City Bar policies.
