When legal professionals in Ohio need to know the latest updates in the industry, they turn to The Ohio State Bar Association. The Columbus-based association makes it so the average person in need of legal assistance can receive the justice they deserve from quality attorneys.

For nearly 150 years, generations of legal professionals have served the entire state of Ohio with the utmost dedication and care for their clients. According to the Ohio State Bar’s history, the founding documents stated their legal professionals would “advance the science of jurisprudence, to promote reform in the law, to facilitate the administration of justice and to uphold integrity, honor and professionalism in the legal profession.”

Since its inception, the Ohio State Bar has been home to a number well-known professionals. Among the original members included President of the United States, William McKinley. In 1912, Florence Ellingwood Allen broke history when she became the first woman to speak at an annual Association meeting, and then the first woman to be elected as a justice in the United States.

For close to 100 years, the Bar has found its home in Columbus. The Association that once represented 400 members– a number that certainly should not be laughed at– now represents over 26,000 legal professionals. The Association has expanded to include 43 committees and sections. Their current leadership and staff serve as advocates for those who need them, and as a voice for those who may otherwise not have been heard. These Ohio legal professionals promote some of the highest standards of practice in the United States.
