The West Virginia State Bar is the mandatory unified association established in May 1947 for the attorneys actively practicing law in West Virginia. The state bar serves as a way to improve the administration of state justice, jumpstart beneficial programs for the legal profession, and provide legal services and assistance to West Virginia citizens. The two foremost priorities of the bar are upholding a high standard of ethics and professionalism among West Virginia attorneys as well as promote continuing legal education.
