Dominican Bar Association

Founded in 1990 in New York, the Dominican Bar Association currently represents thousands of lawyers and law students of Latin descent all across the country. This bar association was originally formed because of the hard times that faced many professionals that had left the Dominican Republic and come to New York City in the search for a better life. These attorneys and legal professionals found little to no support from the established legal community, and because of this, came together to form the Dominican Bar Association.
