Office of Bar Counsel

The Kentucky Bar Association, under the authority of the Supreme Court, is responsible for investigating complaints against lawyers licensed by the KBA or practicing in this Commonwealth and for prosecuting charges of professional misconduct issued by the Inquiry Commission. The Inquiry Commission is an independent body appointed by the Court to receive and process complaints from any source which allege professional misconduct by lawyers. The Office of Bar Counsel provides administrative support to the Inquiry Commission, investigates complaints and prosecutes charges as outlined by the Inquiry Commission Regulations.


The lawyers of Kentucky and the Kentucky Supreme Court recognize that action should be taken to prevent unethical conduct and to restore confidence and trust should misconduct occur. To that end, the Kentucky Supreme Court has announced stringent standards for admission to the bar and created the Kentucky Board of Bar Examiners to supervise the admissions process. If you have a question concerning bar admission, contact the Office of Bar Admissions at 859-246-2381.
