About the Dallas Bar Association

The Dallas Bar Association (DBA) was founded by 40 lawyers in 1873, during an era that witnessed remarkable growth in the city of Dallas. As stated in its first charter - signed in 1916 by 100 members - the purpose of "the Bar Association of Dallas" was "for support of a literary undertaking and maintenance of a library." The Dallas Bar Association has since been dedicated to the continuing education of its members as well as public service programs and improvement of the administration of justice. Today, more than 11,000 members participate in this voluntary association. For more information, visit
