The New York State Bar Association is building a stronger presence where we can welcome members wherever they reside, whatever they work, in whichever field they practise. The strength and relevancy of NYSBA depends on our accessibility and the ease with which members can get what they require. Over 300,000 attorneys are licensed to practise in New York. More than 40% of them live or practise outside of the state and approximately 26,000 live outside the United States. Although these attorneys are not physically inside the state, they have a professional tie to New York, and need New York law and connections. NYSBA is expanding globally to meet those needs.
