Lawyers Connect Despite Pandemic

Despite a virtual networking environment the past year, the New York City Bar Association’s Lawyers Connect programs did not slow down.

Members enjoyed a variety of engaging remote opportunities, including a virtual scavenger hunt across Manhattan, a highly competitive trivia night, and most recently, a summer wine tasting with Happy Cork (a popular, female-and-minority-owned wine and spirits shop in Brooklyn).

We hosted several repeat teams for the scavenger hunt and trivia night, one of which had met at an in-person Lawyers Connect event a few years ago. Since first meeting, this group has continued to get together on their own – and that’s exactly what our Lawyers Connect events are all about, providing members with the opportunities to make connections to build their network.

Whether members were laughing over trivia bloopers with fellow attendees (with some from across the Atlantic!), or sampling delicious wines, the City Bar’s Lawyers Connect group was as connected as ever throughout the pandemic.

Keep an eye out for our 2021-2022 calendar for a mix of live events and online programming.
