Welcome to Wbasny

Welcome to the home page of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York (“WBASNY”). We are a dynamic and energetic organization of over 4,400 female and male attorneys and judges dedicated to the advancement of women in law and society. With 19 chapters across the state, WBASNY members come from private practice, government, academia and the courts.

WBASNY advocates for legislation that promotes equal access to justice and gender equality throughout New York and the United States. With ECOSOC status at the United Nations, we support women and girls around the world. We are proud of our global outreach to female attorneys in South Africa and Croatia.

WBASNY members enjoy quality continuing legal education, networking and unparalleled mentoring opportunities. Substantive committees across the spectrum of practice let members work with colleagues from across the state, increasing knowledge and building networks for change. WBASNY programs and committees promote diversity within the profession.

WBASNY provides a unique “home” for its members. I am proud to serve as its President this year.

Please explore our website, our substantive committees, our legislative positions, the events listed on our calendar and our member benefits. With 19 chapters (and growing!), we hope that you will join us and find your home, too, with WBASNY.

Amy Baldwin Littman, Esq., WBASNY President
