Affiliated Bar Services

The Department of Bar Services was developed with the primary goal of cultivating relationships with the local and specialty bars around the state. The Massachusetts Bar Association's Department of Bar Services supports the efforts of each of the affiliated bars, while strengthening relations among all of the groups.

Affiliated associations play a vital and irreplaceable role for the specific populations and communities they serve. There are currently 31 such associations with representatives on the MBA House of Delegates.
