Established in 1971, the Bahamas Bar Association is the largest professional organisation in the country. With well over 1,000 attorneys, the Association works to promote, preserve, and provide regulatory oversight to the legal profession and protect the Rule of Law and the Administration of Justice in The Bahamas.
There are several components of the Bar Association:
Membership in the Bahamas Bar Association is mandatory for Attorneys, but is limited to Bahamian citizens. However, Attorneys of other nationalities may be Specially Admitted for particular matters or become Registered Associates if appropriately qualified.
The Bar Association organises Call Days, to call new attorneys to the Bahamas Bar. It also hosts seminars and workshops for attorneys, and legal aid clinics for the general public.
If you have a question or need help, the Bar Association office is open Monday – Thursday, 9am-5pm, and Friday 9am – 3pm. Closed on Saturday, Sundays and holidays.
