Your intellectual and financial support drives the mission of the New York State Bar Association and the Rule of Law.

Sustaining Member dues go towards funding important programs and services including membership initiatives, advocacy, pro bono, mock trial events and more.

As a Sustaining Member you will receive enhanced benefits and additional recognition to allow you to display your Membership proudly.

  • A special platinum Sustaining Membership card
  • Recognition on our Sustaining Member list available on the website, in the Bar Journal and on a running list visible in the Bar Center entryway

Save on CLE

CLE: NYSBA Members enjoy big discounts on All Access Pass

Now Available for $495
Unlimited access to hundreds of On Demand CLE programs delivered by some of the most knowledgeable attorneys in the profession.

The CLE All Access Pass gives you access to nearly 900 on-demand CLE programs, available 24/7.

Valid for twelve months, the Pass is available for purchase during the renewal process in the Membership Dashboard. Please review CLE Board requirements before purchasing. This is a one-time charge and is not eligible for monthly installments. Access starts upon receipt.


A new, simpler way to pay your dues


Enrolling in Auto-Renew means your credit card will be charged automatically on a monthly/annual basis based on billing preference, keeping your Membership current allowing you to receive your benefits uninterrupted.

Two billing preferences are available:

 

Monthly Plan
First payment is due today with subsequent payments spread out equally over the remaining months in the year.
Annual Plan
Pay full dues now and it will automatically renew on an annual basis.

 

Please Note: Selecting the auto renew option means NYSBA will automatically process your Membership dues with your card on file. If you decide to cancel your Membership prior to paying dues in full for the entire year, you will have to cover the remaining balance before renewing your Membership again. If you wish to cancel your participation, call 800.582.2452 in advance of your month of expiration.

Additionally, applicable Section dues, Sustaining Membership upgrade, and/or optional CLE All Access Pass add-on will be charged in full at time of renewal and are not included in the monthly installment plan. The monthly plan option of 12 installments is applied to your general Membership fee only.


Providing assistance to those who need it

The Dues Waiver Program is intended to help Members by providing assistance to attorneys whose financial circumstances are such that full payment of membership dues would pose a financial hardship. Situations which would merit a dues waiver include:

  • Unemployment or income constraints
  • Time out from practice for family or health reasons
  • Reduced income based upon extraordinary practice or business losses

Dues Waiver criteria:

  • Applicants must have been a member of NYSBA for 3 consecutive years prior to requesting a dues waiver.
  • Applicants whose adjusted gross annual income exceeds $75,000 USD will be considered ineligible for the dues waiver program
  • If the applicant is unemployed or underemployed, and their adjusted gross annual income is less than $75,000 USD, they may receive a reduction in annual dues
  • Applicants may receive dues waivers/reductions for no more than five total years over the course of their NYSBA membership.
  • Has your current employment status been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?

A dues waiver request must be submitted prior to June 30th of the specific membership year one is wishing to join. If approved, an individual may receive a dues reduction of 25%-100% depending on their circumstances.
