The Harford County Bar Association welcomes new members!
An application consists of 1) completing the online application below and 2) paying yearly dues of $85.00, which dues are automatically pro-rated at the half-year point. Our year begins in June.
Under our current By-Laws, as Amended March 22, 2016, Article III – Membership is open to:
(a) Any member of the Maryland Bar in good standing who desires admission to the Association shall apply and pay the requisite dues. The applicant shall be subject to review and approval by the Admissions and Membership Committee.
(b) Retired members of the Maryland Bar and judicial law clerks may join the Association as non-voting members.
(c) Membership in the Association shall be terminated immediately upon voluntary resignation; nonpayment of dues as set forth in subsection (d); or suspension or loss of license to practice law by the Court of Appeals of Maryland.
