Established in 1872, the Brooklyn Bar Association’s primary purpose is to promote professional competence among attorneys and increased respect for the legal system.
We promote access to the legal system through our Lawyer Referral Service which provides referrals for legal assistance in multiple practice areas. We advance leadership and promote opportunities for success through our networking opportunities and through our sections and committees, which focus on improvements in the practice of law. We provide Continuing Legal Education, which enhances the skills, competence and ethics of our members.
Our belief that the administration of justice is achieved through the integrity, honor and courtesy of the members of the legal profession is the foundation of our association.
