The WBA community includes more than a thousand diverse legal professionals in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area who share a strong affinity with the WBA and its mission. Through WBA membership, you gain instant access to a core segment of the local legal community that other bar associations in the area simply cannot provide.
The WBA is also well-known for its ability to bring together a cross-section of Black professionals, working in a range of disciplines, from across the region. This provides our members with networking opportunities that reach beyond the legal profession, which can often result in referrals as well as new client or mentor-protégé relationships.
In addition to our first-class signature events, the WBA hosts a variety of networking receptions, panels, fireside chats, roundtable discussions and other premier events throughout the year.
