History has been made in New York State with the election of Letitia James as New York State’s first African-American Attorney General and the first woman ever elected to the position. 

The New York Attorney General is one of the most influential justice and law enforcement positions in the country. The members of the New York State Bar Association look forward to working with Ms. James toward our longstanding goal of ensuring fairness and equal treatment under the law for all.

The New York State Bar Association is the largest voluntary state bar association in the nation. Since 1876, the Association has helped shape the development of law, educated and informed the legal profession and the public, and championed the rights of New Yorkers through advocacy and guidance in our communities.
