Membership and Community

Committees focus on the function of the Memphis Bar Association and often serve as a bridge between the MBA and our surrounding community. Every member is encouraged to join a committee that interests them. From Access to Justice to Bench Bar, committees are a great way to network, and promote the values of the legal profession.
