Maine State Bar Association

The Maine Legislature created the Maine State Bar Association (MSBA) through a legislative act in 1891. Although formally established by a legislative body, MSBA is an entirely voluntary bar association and nongovernmental entity that benefits all of the lawyers in the state. Different levels of membership for the Maine State Bar Association are available to Maine lawyers, out-of-state lawyers, corporations, law students, legal staff, and judges.
