State Bar of Nevada
Established in 1928, the State Bar of Nevada is an organization that exists to both regulate licensed attorneys in Nevada and improve the practice of law in the state. The Nevada Bar is a mandatory bar association that all lawyers licensed to practice law in Nevada must belong to. Since the State Bar of Nevada exists to benefit and to regulate the practice of law and attorneys practicing law in Nevada, membership is restricted to lawyers that have been licensed to practice law in Nevada.
There are a number of different ways that the State Bar of Nevada regulates the practice of law in the state. One of the more notable ways is by being in charge of licensing new attorneys to practice law in Nevada, including administering the Nevada bar exam. The Nevada Bar also regulates licensed lawyers through the Office of Bar Counsel, which disciplines licensed attorneys that have violated the Nevada ethics rules with regard to the practice of law.
Members of the State Bar of Nevada receive a number of benefits from their membership to the State Bar of Nevada. Several corporations, such as Fastcase Online Legal Research and Fedex, offer special discounts to the State Bar of Nevada’s members. Lawyers that belong to the State Bar of Nevada are able to stay informed about the latest developments in different areas of law by attending continuing legal education seminars or watching the seminars streamed online.
