Join the BADC

Founded in 1871, the Bar Association of the District of Columbia (BADC) is one of the oldest bar associations in the nation.

The BADC and its members have a proud history of working closely with the judiciary, courts, the DC Council, and the US Congress on the administration of justice.

As DC’s voluntary bar it lobbies on behalf of its members, provides a reduced fee lawyer referral service, and mentors young lawyers.

This year marks the 147th year the BADC has promoted civility, justice, and collegiality among members of the legal profession in the capital through advocacy, education, and social events.
