  2. To maintain a program that provides continuing legal education for members of the Bar.
  3. To make charitable contributions to worthy law students in the form of scholarships.

We are proud to participate in the judicial screening process, appointing members of Columbian Lawyers Association to the New York Supreme and Civil Court screening panels. The panels convene every April. It is time consuming but rewarding work, contributing to the selection of qualified candidates for election to our Courts.

  • Enlighten and entertain all CLA Members with Italian cultural outings and programs.
  • Cultivate newly admitted Italo-American attorneys as new Members, Officers, Directors and Committee participants.
  • Enhance our Scholarship program with added promotion and fund-raising.
  • Raise awareness of our organization through an active public relations campaign.
