Membership Has Its Benefits

As a member of the Bar Association of DC, you gain will access to a network of other legal professionals, exciting events and top notch CLEs!

 

Lawyer Referral Service

The Lawyer Referral Service Program is a one of a kind program where incoming potential clients speak to our representatives and then we directly connect them to an attorney in the field of service they are seeking. As a BADC member, you'll benefit from a discounted price to be added to the list of attorneys to whom we refer potential new clients!

Networking Opportunities 

As a member of the Bar Association of DC, you'll gain many opportunities to network with other legal professionals, and grow your network. In addition to our annual special events, we host various happy hour and networking events free of charge to all BADC members. So bring your business cards and join us!

Continuing Legal Education

Although the DC Bar does not have mandatory CLE requirements, we know that keeping up with the latest information in your field is necessary to achieve the success you seed. Members benefit from accessional CLE courses hosted by the BADC to keep them on top of the latest trends in the legal field.


Advocacy

As a member of the Bar Association of DC you'll gain access to advocacy opportunities where we put our heads together and bring positive change for the communities we all serve. Because the BADC is a voluntary bar association, we do not have many restrictions for advocacy and therefore can work directly with legislatures to bring meaningful change.
