The Sarasota County Bar Association (SCBA) is a voluntary association of lawyers and judges who practice law and administer our judicial system in Sarasota County. Incorporated on January 20, 1960, the SCBA has existed as an association since 1926. The affairs of the SCBA are managed by its officers and Board of Directors with the assistance of a full-time Executive Director. Our mission is to advance professionalism, promote practice development, encourage public service, fellowship and support access to legal services for all.
To fulfill goals enunciated in its mission statement and articles of incorporation, the SCBA's over 950 members stay involved and connected through eleven (11) Practice Sections, Committees, Young Lawyers Division, South County Division, and Networking Events.
As a service to its members, The Docket, an award winning newsletter, is published ten (10) months a year, and provides information about substantive areas of the law, upcoming events and special interest features.
