Operating under one roof, the Lafayette Bar Association & Foundation serves both the legal community and the public through various programs and services. The Lafayette Bar Association was officially created in 1972 as a professional association for the legal community. The Association is a professional membership organization whose mission is to serve the profession, its members, and the community by promoting justice, professional excellence, respect for the rule of law and fellowship amongst attorneys and the court. The Association is funded through membership dues and professional services and serves over 900 members through its dedication to providing high-quality programs and resources. The Foundation is dedicated to helping those in our community in need og legal advice, questions and counsel by providing pro bono (free) legal programs to educate and guide the indigent, low-income, or disadvantaged within our community.
