The West Virginia Bar Association, organized July 8, 1886, was formed to advance the science of jurisprudence; to promote reform in the law; to facilitate the administration of justice; to uphold integrity, honor and courtesy in the legal profession; to encourage liberal education; and to cultivate cordial intercourse among the members of the bar.


We offer programs and services to enhance professional development: from lobbying the legislature on matters concerning the practice of law, to sponsoring fascinating trips to other countries, and to providing personal and family insurance programs.
