Promoting justice, professional excellence, and respect for the law as well as improving public access to the judicial system is our mission at Louisville Bar Association.
Founded in 1900, we are a voluntary member organization of legal professionals, trustees, law students, and professors working for its members by offering conferences, continuing legal education, and employment services. Scholarships are offered through the LBA to students as well as numerous grants and awards available to individuals and organizations through the LBA Foundation to further their professional development and recognize their accomplishments in the community.
Pride in the Profession | Service to the Community
Our goal is to inform, educate, and empower all members of the legal community in Kentuckiana. Through professional development opportunities, in-person and online networking, and a host of initiatives for all types of legal professionals, the LBA provides members with the tools and support they need.
We are not a state agency. All of our programs and activities are supported by member dues, seminar fees, publications revenue, commissions, grant funding, and other self-generated revenue.
Louisville Bar Association hosts the following legal clinics and seminars as a free, public service to the community: For a schedule of events and/or any questions, please contact Lea Hardwick at firstname.lastname@example.org or (502) 206-3585.
