The young lawyer sections of the various bar associations in Brooklyn and New York City have continued a recent tradition last week — an annual “Battle of the Bars” — which took place at Emmett O’Lunney’s in Manhattan on Tuesday, June 12.

A total of 20 local bar associations participated and the young lawyer’s section of the Brooklyn Bar Association was among the four teams that won money for their law charity. In BBA’s case, $150 went to the Volunteer Lawyers Project.

It was the third year in a row that the event was hosted. This year it partnered with the Gift of Life Marrow Registry, to raise money and to help find potential donors.
