Since the Connecticut Bar Association (CBA) was founded on June 2, 1875, it has been dedicated to promoting public service and advancing the principles of law and justice. With over 9,000 members, it is the preeminent organization for lawyers and the legal profession in Connecticut.
The 1875 Society is a group of members committed to sustaining the CBA and the legal profession in Connecticut by supporting the delivery of essential programs to fellow members and the public through a voluntary annual contribution of $100*. These contributions also enable the CBA to maintain its high standards for ethics, professionalism, and civility; advance the effective administration of justice; and build diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal community.
*After your first $100 contribution, you will be billed annually on your membership renewal invoices for each bar year. You may opt out of the payment when renewing but will no longer be considered an 1875 Society member at the start of that bar year. These Contributions are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. You may wish to consult with your tax advisor as to whether it can be deducted as a business expense.
