The Montgomery Bar Association
The Montgomery Bar Association, a non-profit organization of nearly 2,100 Montgomery County attorneys, offers its members numerous opportunities for professional development and helps deliver the services of member attorneys to the community. We hope you will take some time to explore our site and discover all we have to offer.
The Montgomery Bar Association offers the following Services to its members and to the Public.
Continuing Legal Education
The Montgomery Bar Association's CLE program offers over fifty accredited ethics and substantive courses annually. In fact, as many of our members will attest, the annual savings on (state required) CLE courses alone often will exceed the cost of MBA membership.
Sections and Committees
More than fifty committees and four sections provide members the opportunity to participate actively in the Association. Each committee and section addresses a specific area of the legal profession. All provide invaluable opportunities for networking, and personal and professional growth.
The Montgomery Bar Association offers a wide variety of publications to its members and the public.
In keeping with our tradition of promoting fellowship among our colleagues, social events are hosted by several sections and committees throughout the year. Highlights of the social calendar include the Annual Membership Dinner, Annual Bench-Bar Conference, The Member Dinner Dance, The Annual Clambake and Family Picnic, sporting events and dozens of other group outings.
Our Association offers an array of services to support the legal practices of our members. These include a comprehensive and competitive group insurance program. Members are eligible to participate in a number of plans, including professional liability, health and major medical insurance, life insurance and disability income protection offered exclusively through the MBA.
Another popular benefit of MBA membership is the opportunity to participate in various Listserv discussions. Each committee and section hosts their own Listserv, which members use to communicate meeting minutes, reminders, even questions about legal matters and practice.

Members are encouraged to enjoy the Courthouse Cafe at the Bar Building for professional and social meetings. Lunch is typically served between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
