Dear Colleague:


I am writing to invite you to become a member of the King County Bar Association (KCBA).  With over 5,400 members, KCBA is the largest voluntary bar association in the Pacific Northwest.  KCBA is committed to serving a diverse membership, strengthening our justice system and building a stronger community.


As a member of KCBA, you will become a part of our influential network, giving you the opportunity to play a role in shaping the practice of law in King County.  The myriad opportunities we provide include 16 practice sections and 16 committees; a wide range of legal professionals willing to share insights, experiences and contacts; the capacity to advocate for a just and accessible legal system and profession; and the opportunity to work to achieve excellence in the administration of justice.


For newer attorneys, our Young Lawyers Division is a great resource for networking and gaining knowledge and experience for your practice and is a perfect way to develop your leadership skills.  Additionally, you will have a number of opportunities to give back to the community through events put on by the YLD Community Involvement Committee.


No matter where you are in your career, KCBA can open doors, enhance your practice and provide numerous opportunities to become involved and meet new colleagues.  Join us today and let KCBA work for you!

Make a Difference in our Community

Pro bono service has been a priority of the King County Bar Association since 1939. Our programs help people keep their housing, file for bankruptcy, obtain custody of children, get a divorce in abusive situations, vacate their criminal records and more. KCBA handles over 10,000 cases a year and works with over 1,300 volunteers to provide over 7.4 million dollars of free legal services in King County.

You can support pro bono work at KCBA by:

  • Becoming a member. Your membership, CLE, and Lawyer Referral Service dollars go towards the financial health and support of the pro bono programs.

  • Becoming a volunteer with one of our six programs. Donate your time and talent to make access to justice a reality for our community.

  • Donating to King County Bar Foundation. Your donations directly support all six programs and the KCBA diversity scholarship program.

I’m proud of KCBA’s dedication to providing services for the residents of King County with a view to making our community the best it can be. As a member of your local bar, you help us continue this work.

New Benefits

Finally, KCBA has made a commitment to continue to improve the value of your membership in addition to providing benefits you count on:

  • Lower rates on our quality CLE programs

  • Group rates on medical, dental, and vision insurance and discounts on products and services

  • Opportunities for you to earn CLE credits through our practice section meetings

  • Lawyer Referral Service membership at a reduced fee

I heartily look forward to meeting you and working to make KCBA, and your membership, all they can be. Join Us!
