Benefits of membership include over 150 committees working to improve and reform the practice and administration of law, a members-only library that happens to be the largest member-funded in the country, and not to mention the unparalleled professional opportunities.

It’s not too late to become a Committee member at the New York City Bar Association, which means that it’s not too late to become involved in over 150 areas of law within a membership body of over 24,000 students and legal professionals! NYCBA is still accepting applications for committee member positions, and though some deadlines have passed, others are ready and willing for someone to take strong hold of the leadership opportunities.
NYCBA has reached out and noted that AABANY members are strongly encouraged to apply. The sooner, the better. Let’s get the ball rolling.

Goal: The NLF Public Interest Internship will provide support for one law student to experience a meaningful 2015 summer internship at a public interest organization that provides either direct legal services, impact litigation, or advocacy on behalf of the Asian Pacific American (APA) community.
- Public interest organizations will provide NLF with a legal intern summer project proposal.
- NLF will select a host organization from these submissions. Host organization awardee is permitted and encouraged to advertise the internship opportunity in its recruitment.
- In March, the selected host organization will provide a list of summer legal interns (hired or tentative) for consideration of the award, along with their resumes and any additional supplemental materials for consideration.
- NLF will conduct telephonic interviews with the submitted summer legal intern(s). NLF at its option may select to narrow the pool of eligible summer legal interns to interview. The recipient of the award will be decided by the interviews, resume, supporting materials, and input from the host organization.
- A grant of $6,000 will be provided to the host organization. 100% of this grant must be used for the legal intern’s salary. The host organization is responsible for any administrative fees, payroll processing fees, federal withholding, taxes, etc.
- The selected intern shall work at the host organization for a minimum of 40 hours a week for 10 weeks during the summer.
