The Historical Society of the New York Courts’ Young Lawyers Committee partners with local New York law schools through our Law School Student Chapters. Through these chapters, we bring engaging events to campuses targeted to students and young alumni. We strongly believe that law students, as the future young lawyers who will continue to make the Historical Society the great institution that it is, are an important and growing part of our membership.

Historical Society of the New York Courts Student Chapter at Albany Law School
The purpose of the Albany Law Chapter of the Historical Society is to promote the history of the New York State Courts in the State’s capital. It will seek to take advantage of its location by connecting students with current history being made as well as the past landmark that were decided only blocks away from the law school. To accomplish this feat, the Chapter will hold various programs at Albany Law School and plan off-campus events designed to increase awareness of the history of New York State Courts.
Historical Society of the New York Courts Student Chapter at Brooklyn Law School
The purpose of the BLS Student Chapter of the Historical Society is to better engage young lawyers in the Historical Society’s mission and events to preserve, protect, and promote the legal history of New York; and to work with the Historical Society to host events at, or in conjunction with, BLS.
Founded in 2017, the Fordham Law Historical Society is a student chapter of the Historical Society of the New York Courts, which includes many judges and practicing attorneys in New York. We are legal history enthusiasts looking to connect with like-minded students and practitioners. Joining this group is an excellent opportunity to network with attorneys and judges practicing at the State and Federal level in New York.
