The Westchester County Bar Association, established on February 11, 1896, is a not-for-profit corporation with a voluntary membership of more than 2,000 lawyers. The purpose of the Association is to promote the ends of justice, to cultivate jurisprudence, to afford access to the courts to all who seek redress, to facilitate the administration of justice, to elevate the standards of integrity, honor, competence and courtesy in the legal profession, and to participate with all members of society in seeking and perfecting the common good.
The Association pursues these goals with the aid of seven Sections and more than sixty Committees. Our Officers and Board of Directors are both hard-working and diverse, representing a cross-section of the richness and depth of our legal community, both personally and in their practices.
The Westchester County Bar Association provides attorney, affiliate, and law student members with opportunities to help shape our legal community and to maintain the high standards of the legal profession. Members are kept informed by a monthly magazine the Westchester Lawyer, regular mailings, web postings, emails and by the annual publication of the Westchester Bar Journal.
