Today the National Bar Association is the nation’s oldest and largest national network of predominately African American attorneys. It represents approximately 44,000 lawyers, judges, law professors and law students and has over 80 affiliate chapters throughout the United States and around the world. The organization seeks to advance the science of jurisprudence, preserve the independence of the judiciary and to uphold the honor and integrity of the legal profession.

 

When the NBA was organized in 1925, there were fewer than 1,000 African-American lawyers in the United States, and less than 120 belonged to the Association. By 1945, there were nearly 250 members representing 25% of the African-American members of the bar. Over the past 75 years, the NBA has grown enormously in size and influence.
