The New York County Lawyers Association (NYCLA) is a bar association located in New York City

The New York County Lawyers Association (NYCLA) is a bar association located in New York City. The New York County Lawyers Association was founded in 1908 because the existing bar association excluded some lawyers from membership due to their race, gender, ethnicity or religion. A meeting held in Carnegie Hall in 1907 determined to create a "democratic bar association" and 143 attorneys incorporated the NYCLA a few months later.

One of the largest county bar associations in the country, the New York County Lawyers’ Association has also been one of the most influential since its founding in 1908. Today, representing more than 10,000 members, the Association is a major force for professional ethics and integrity and a powerful voice in such issues as racial, gender, and ethnic inclusion, and legal assistance to the poor.

In this detailed chronicle of the Association’s first century, Edwin David Robertson draws on a rich array of primary sources that bring to life both the internal history of the Association and its role in the legal and political life of the City. Here are stories of the legions of lawyers who, in the Association, successfully faced the challenges of their profession and created a powerful community of shared interests and commitments.

Filled with accounts of key cases and many of the backroom “bar stories” that have become local legal legends, this book is also a unique look at the inner life of the law played out during Manhattan’s most dynamic era.

  • Robertson successfully meshes the history of this association of lawyers with the history of the United States and of New York City. To mention some of the founders and early leaders of the New York County Lawyers' Association (NYCLA) is not meant to detract from others: Charles Evans Hughes (both Sr. and Jr.), Benjamin N. Cardozo, John Dos Passos, Sr. (father of the novelist John Dos Passos, Jr.), Charles E. Rushmore (the eponym of Mount Rushmore), Henry Morgenthau, Sr. (father of Robert Morgenthau), Samuel Seabury, and William Nelson Cromwell. The latter two were instrumental in bringing down Jimmy Walker and bringing in Fiorello LaGuardia, whom many regard as New York's greatest mayor ever. More reading on those latter two will reveal more of their accomplishments. To visit NYCLA today is to walk in the footsteps of these giants.

    A primary reason for the founding of the Association in 1908 was that the existing bar association, the City Bar, was not friendly to blacks or Jews at the time. The New York County Lawyers' Association was thus founded upon the principles of inclusiveness and non-elitism.

    The book is full of interesting details. In 1910, the population of Manhattan was 2.3 million. Today it is 1.5 million. And back then, residential buildings were mostly low rise. Imagine the teeming population packed into those 5 story tenements combined with the smell of horse manure. Here's another: Dos Passos Sr. was on the Board of Directors of NYCLA (or at least Chair of certain committees through the years), had a family in New York, and also had a secret family in Virginia (his novelist son was from this Virginia branch). No wonder that he sought to have NYCLA commission a study on divorce laws across the United States!

  • This is an very resourceful book; you will be amazed about how much history a local bar association has contributed to the law. New York County Lawyers Association is one of them. Learn the early history of civil rights litigation or how the trial lawyer successfully defended his client/owner of the building involved in the "Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire." There is a sea of information on law practice of 1930s and up to to 1970s - how the practice has changed. You envy some of these characters who really were appreciated, respected, looked up to. The writing is impeccable, the Mr. Robertson knows his trade.
