Founded in 1875, the Connecticut Bar Association had only been in existence for three years before it was instrumental in helping found the national organization that later turned into the American Bar Association. The Connecticut Bar Association is a voluntary organization that provides benefits like an online research library, discounted continuing legal education courses, legislative advocacy, and an online legal job board to its members. The association is also dedicated to promoting public service and advancing the principles of law and justice through its members. The Connecticut Bar Association does not regulate admission to law practice for the state – that is a function of the Connecticut Bar Examining Committee of the Connecticut Judicial Branch.
