Amicus Briefs — As part of our New York Chapter’s commitment to advance the cause of matrimonial law, and on a pro bono basis, to the extent that the Board of Managers determines that a significant legal or social issue is raised in a case being litigated at the appellate level, permission is sought to file an Amicus (Friend of the Court) Brief with the court. The Amicus Brief advocates what the AAML - New York Chapter believes to be the correct public policy or legal position raised in the case. Often, the Academy’s position is adopted, or referred to, by the appellate court in the written decision.

As an accommodation to the Bar and the public at large, the recent Amicus Briefs, filed by the AAML - New York Chapter, are annexed below.
