    Bar of the City of New York

    Does this bar mean 'lawyers' association'? In the dictionary, I can only find 'lawyer's position'.

    ex)He helped to found the Bar of the City of New York and played a key role in reform movements in the city and the state.

    I don't know. The state, not an individual city, sets the standards for being admitted to the bar. Perhaps it just does mean an assocation for lawyers.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
