About the Atlanta Bar Association

The Atlanta Bar Association is the largest voluntary bar association in the southeast with a membership of over 6000 members from the counties constituting in the United States census Atlanta Metropolitan area. Our 6,000 members - including students from area law schools - are as diversified and varied as the activities and programs we offer to them. This includes numerous professional, social, financial, charitable and civic programs and services, which we hope you will explore!

Our association provides Continuing Legal Education courses which have won national recognition and present quality cost-effective programming to equip lawyers in their areas of practice. Each year, Pro Bono March Madness offers numerous CLE programs to train lawyers to volunteer with our public interest organizations to address some of the unmet needs of our legal community. Our Sections and committees build relationships and leadership skills. The Lawyer Referral and Information Service assists the public in finding the right attorney who can serve them with professionalism, integrity and a commitment to service.

We enjoy healthy, collaborative relationships with other community bars, including the State Bar of Georgia, minority bars and many sister bar associations. In 2000, the Atlanta Bar led the way in forming the Multi-Bar Leadership Council (MBLC), which brings representatives from 14 bar associations together each month to discuss ways to enhance diversity and inclusion in the law.

Our programs, service and outreach continue to grow and serve our members and community. Please email us if you would like to learn more about the Atlanta Bar Association.

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The Atlanta Bar Association seeks to eliminate biases, barriers and prejudices within the legal profession by creating and promoting environments that treat all individuals with respect and dignity. Diversity is an inclusive concept and encompasses, without limitation, race, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin, age, disability, and marital and parental status. We believe that the varied perspectives and backgrounds of our members are central to the Atlanta Bar Association's success as an organization and are valuable to the public we serve.

The Atlanta Bar Association is committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and within our association through, among other things: our programming; our lead role in the founding of and our support of the Multi Bar Leadership Council; our pipeline programs that introduce diverse youth and law students into the legal field; and our relationships with our members, staff, sponsors, and the broader community. Further, we encourage our members to volunteer and seek leadership opportunities within the Atlanta Bar so that our organization reflects the full diversity of our community.
