Bar Profile:

The nearly century old history of the Delaware State Bar Association is marked by evolving efforts to promote ethical conduct by lawyers, to require and offer high quality continuing legal education, to protect the public from the unauthorized practice of law, to review and make recommendations regarding Delaware’s court system and to foster the mentoring of new lawyers. Service to the public is another hallmark of the Association. Encouraging and facilitating pro bono work, providing a lawyer referral service and offering various legal handbooks are a few examples of the Association’s efforts in public outreach. The Association also has remained true to one of its earliest goals: “the cultivation of fraternal relationships among the lawyers of Delaware.” This goal has been achieved through a consistent effort to communicate news among members and to sponsor social events. Today, members of the Association enjoy the monthly Bar Journal, luncheons, receptions and the annual Bench and Bar Conference.
