About

The Justice Brandeis Law Society was founded in 2007. JBLS was established to foster a shared commitment to Jewish values as well as to encourage civility and build camaraderie among all attorneys. In furtherance of these purposes, JBLS serves as a forum for the advocation of issues and education of topics of mutual interest and concern to its members.

Our membership is made up of judges, attorneys, and court personnel who possess a commitment to justice and fairness to all. JBLS sponsors many events throughout the year including its annual dinner attended by hundreds of JBLS members and their guests from throughout Westchester County, the Hudson Valley and the metropolitan area, a Hanukkah event, a program commemorating the Holocaust, and presentations where speakers present on topics ranging from the Israeli court system to the interplay between American jurisprudence and Jewish law. These events feature some of the most accomplished and well-respected lawyers and judges in New York and beyond.

If you are interested in joining the JBLS, please proceed to the Membership page and complete the online registration.
