About the Kentucky Bar Association
Share |


History

The first meeting of lawyers from across Kentucky was held in 1871 during which a voluntary association was created. In 1934, the Kentucky General Assembly passed an act creating an all inclusive bar association which authorized the Court of Appeals (now Supreme Court) to adopt and promulgate rules and regulations defining the practice of law and to establish a code of professional responsibility to govern the discipline of members of the Bar. Since then, the  Kentucky Bar Association has been the mandatory bar association of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Mission

The mission and purpose of the Association is to maintain a proper discipline of the members of the bar in accordance with these Rules and with the principles of the legal profession as a public calling, to initiate and supervise, with the approval of the Court, appropriate means to insure a continuing high standard of professional competence on the part of the members of the Bar, and to bear a substantial and continuing responsibility for promoting the efficiency and improvement of the judicial system.
