Mission Statement

The Bar Association of the District of Columbia was founded in 1871 and is the third oldest Bar Association in the nation (following the Boston City and New York City Bar Associations). BADC's members play a vital role in our city’s and nation’s advocacy system.  The BADC is DC's voluntary bar and seeks to promote civility, justice and collegiality among members of the legal profession in the nation's capital.
