The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) is a voluntary bar association for the state of New York. NYSBA was founded in 1877 with the stated goal to cultivate the science of jurisprudence; to promote reform in the law; to facilitate the administration of justice, and to elevate the standards of integrity, honor, professional skill, and courtesy in the legal profession. Its first President was David B. Hill. Among the reforms in the legislation signed into law creating the association was the removal of the restrictions on the admission of women to the practice of law. In 1896, NYSBA proposed the first global means for settling disputes among nations, what is now called the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague.

The American Council on Germany strives to build a better understanding of important political, economic, and social issues in transatlantic and wider international affairs. The Council's programming is aimed at reaching a broad range of individuals in an effort to improve the German-American and U.S-European partnership. This is achieved through a combination of events designed to reach different audiences. Some events have a long history and are conducted on a regular basis. Others are organized on an ad hoc basis and respond to current issues in transatlantic relations. The ACG works closely with a myriad of partner organizations to leverage scarce resources and to maximize – rather than duplicate – efforts.
