Westchester Black Bar Association

Welcome to the Westchester Black Bar Association (WBBA) Website. Our membership consists of attorneys, judges, public officials, academia, law students and legal professionals who reside or work in Westchester County and the tri-state area.

Our purpose is to: improve the integrity and standards of professionalism in the legal community; improve public confidence in the judicial system and the administration of justice; promote and encourage independence, diversity and inclusion in the judiciary and in the court system; and uphold the promise of equality, fairness, and justice for all under law regardless of race, color, sex, creed, or national origin.

We hope that you will join us!
