Since its founding in 1914, the Maricopa County Bar Association has been the largest voluntary bar association in Arizona. Located in Phoenix, one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the nation, MCBA is where the legal community connects.
While State Bar of Arizona membership is mandatory for licensed attorneys, MCBA membership is voluntary. Through its continuing legal education (CLE) programs, social events and charitable activities, MCBA provides a venue for professional growth, networking and public service to the county's diverse legal community.
MCBA's 16 practice, employment or age-related sections and divisions offer members even more opportunities to engage in activities with fellow practitioners. Sections and divisions also offer leadership experience through their executive councils, as does the MCBA through its 30-member board of directors.
In all areas of service, the MCBA encourages and supports diversity in the legal profession and the judicial system. The MCBA supports fair opportunities for attorneys and all persons regardless of their ethnic background, religion or gender.
The mission of the Maricopa County Bar Association is to serve its members, the legal profession, the judicial system and the public.
