Links to the Main Associations of Lawyers in Each State
Each state in the US has what is called a “bar association,” a professional body of lawyers. A bar association is generally responsible for the regulation of lawyers and the legal profession in its respective state or jurisdiction. Every state’s bar association has a website, and many of them have a website or page devoted specifically to the Family Law section of the bar. While bar associations often emphasize service to their members (lawyers), their websites can serve as a good source of information for the public as well.
The term “admission to the bar” indicates passing of a “bar exam,” and allows a lawyer to practice a particular area of law. But that admission to the bar does not necessarily indicate membership in that state’s bar association. While some states require that all lawyers be a member of a bar association, others do not.
With those key phrases in mind, below is a list of each of the Bar Associations in the United States, and a link to each’s website. The list is in the following format:
