Building Community. Serving Community. Celebrating A Decade Of Achievement


* * * Over Ten Years Ago * * * 

It has been 10 years since the humble beginnings of the Muslim Bar Association of New York, when a group of lawyers and law students saw the need to organize the small, but growing pool of Muslim lawyers in the New York area.

MuBANY is proud of its decade long commitment towards building and serving our community! We want to thank all of our guests, sponsors, honorees, and members for being part of our inaugural Gala and celebrating this important milestone with all of us!
