What Is The Bar Association For Attorneys?

The Bar is a regulatory association for Attorneys practicing in the United States based on the State in which they’ve chosen to practice in. Passing examination for Bar entry as well as yearly continuing education is what allows Attorneys to be eligible to practice law in a particular state.  The Bar Association also allows the public to look up an Attorney and make sure they’re still in good standing and eligible to be practicing law or representing someone in a legal matter. The Bar Associations for each state generally offer the ability for people to search for a Attorneys current Bar status. This is a great tool to consider when searching for a top rated attorney in your area.

In the United States, admission to the bar is permission granted by a particular court system to a lawyer to practice law in that system. This is to be distinguished from membership in a bar association. In the United States, some states require membership in the state bar association for all attorneys, while others do not.

Although bar associations historically existed as unincorporated voluntary associations, nearly all bar associations have since been organized (or reorganized) as corporations. Furthermore, membership in some of them (see the next section below) is no longer voluntary, which is why some of them have omitted the word “association” and merely call themselves the “state bar” to indicate that they are the incorporated body that constitutes the entire admitted legal profession of a state.
