Bar Association of Baltimore City

The Bar Association of Baltimore City (BABC) was formed in 1879 and has been serving the City of Baltimore for over a century. When BABC first started there were approximately 100 members and annual membership dues were only $5.00. In 1879 the original members created a constitution seeking to mold BABC into an organization responsible for maintaining the integrity of the legal profession, encouraging the development of the science of jurisprudence, and ensuring justice is properly administered.
