Beginning as a voluntary organization in 1879 and entering formal incorporation in 1923, the Alabama State Bar association is the licensing and regulatory agency for Alabama attorneys charged with promoting the professional responsibility and competence of its members while increasing public understanding and interest. The Alabama State Bar established the first code of legal ethics in the United States, and still implements those through its values of trust, integrity, and service. Membership in the association is required for attorneys practicing in Alabama and is governed by the Alabama Supreme Court.
