About State Bar of Arizona

The State Bar of Arizona is a non-profit organization that operates under the supervision of the Arizona Supreme Court. The Bar regulates approximately 17,300 active attorneys in Arizona and provides education and development programs for the legal profession and the public. The Bar and its members are committed to serving the public by making sure the voices of all people in Arizona are heard in our justice system.

The organization was formed in 1933 and has a rich history of serving attorneys and the public. We have a wide variety of programs designed to help Arizonans, all of which are detailed throughout this Web site.

As part of our goal to protect the public, the State Bar has a lawyer regulation department, which works to resolve problems between clients and attorneys. The Bar also offers legal information for consumers, periodic free legal advice days and other educational programs.

The State Bar of Arizona is governed by a 30-member Board of Governors whose members are primarily lawyers elected by Bar members. Among those board members are four non-lawyers who are appointed to represent the public.

The Bar has two office locations - Phoenix and Tucson. It offers excellent employment opportunities for more than 100 people who perform a wide variety of services.

The State Bar is not a state agency. The organization's activities are funded through membership dues, service fees and other self generated revenue.
