OUR MEMBERS SAY IT BEST!
As a pre-law student in the pipeline to a career as a lawyer, the MBBA has been a beacon of light along my path. MBBA readily-welcomed me into their fold. I was able to network and gain mentorship from the top legal minds in New York City, and fortify my plan for my own legal career.
I became a member of the MBBA in 2014. It has easily been one of the best decisions I’ve made, hands down, over the course of my legal career. The connections I’ve made, relationships I’ve fostered, and opportunities that have been provided to me have not been matched anywhere else. Whether your practice is corporate, government, public interest, or even solo, this is the one stop bar association in NYC for black attorneys, judges, politicians, and everyone in between. The legal workshops that we’ve put on for the community have been some of the best times of my career. So, if you’re looking for the best, brightest, and most caring black legal minds in NY, look no further. You’ve found your home.
The MBBA was very helpful during a time when I needed to find a Black attorney to help me with my personal situation. I am grateful to them and what they do for our community.
