To The Readers Of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel:

What do lawyers need? A strong support system? Professional development? Continuing education courses? NYCLA provides the ingredients for lawyers of all fields and experience to get to the top of their game and stay there. With an open committee structure, lawyers can participate on any committee and be a part of the great work that they do – publish articles, speak at public events, engage in exciting programming and fabulous social events. Public sector employees receive a huge dues discount – 60 percent. Joining is a great value! 

NYCLA is a community of nearly 9,000 attorneys, judges, academics, and law students. We offer a range of benefits and opportunities. As a member you can take advantage of numerous publications, courses, lectures, community programs, and exciting networking events with lawyers and judges. Members receive our monthly newspaper, New York County Lawyer, written for lawyers, by lawyers, and our weekly eNewsletter. Both will keep you up to date on the latest happenings at NYCLA as well as offer professional expertise on legal trends.

Being an NYCLA member also entitles you to  great personal benefits and discounts such as car rentals including Zipcar, retail discounts at Brooks Brothers, and special NYCLA member pricing on gym memberships at Equinox, Crunch, NY Health & Racquet Club and NY Sports Club. These are just a few ways to leverage your NYCLA membership. 

If you’re looking to expand your legal career and are not already an NYCLA member, I encourage you to join us. Visit nycla.org/joinus to learn more or call (212) 267-6646 x208. If you are already a member, speak to me about ways to get involved: join a committee, volunteer for one of NYCLA’s pro bono programs, or pick up new skills through NYCLA’s acclaimed CLE offerings.
