Council of New York Law Associates
A group of law firm associates met while working on John Lindsay's 1968 mayoral re-election campaign ("Lawyers for Lindsay"). As young lawyers, they felt inadequately integrated into the profession, lacked outlets for public service work, and needed a forum to share their interests with others. Out of these concerns, the Council of New York Law Associates was born in 1969.
