State Bar of California

180 Howard Street
San Francisco, California 94105

For more than 80 years, the State Bar of California manages the admission of lawyers in California into practice, investigates complaints of professional misconduct, and prescribes appropriate discipline for misconduct. California was one of the first states to unify its bar and make it mandatory, and it is the only state bar that operates its own State Bar Court for professional responsibility cases. With over 242,000 members, it is the largest state bar association in the United States. The State Bar of California is directly responsible to the Supreme Court of California. It is headquartered in San Francisco and has branches in Los Angeles and Sacramento.
