Welcome to the Lafayette Bar Association & Foundation!

Motivated by Justice, Inspired by Service. 

Welcome to the new website of the Lafayette Bar Association and Foundation. To better serve our members, we recently made the switch to new association management software. We have done our best to keep a familiar look and feel, but you may find that some things look a little different. Please be patient with us as we continue to make our new website as organized and efficient as possible. This website will help with the work of keeping our membership connected. With social networking support, simple tools for staying in touch, space for sharing documents and photos and resources to support committees, we can use it to help market our association and highlight the great work being done.


About the Lafayette Bar Association and Foundation

The Lafayette Bar Association and Foundation is pleased to offer a variety of services to both the public and to our members. Some of the services we offer include pro se legal forms available for purchase, mediation and conference room reservations, pro bono legal services, and year-round events for both members and non-members. Established in 1969, the volunteer Bar Association of Lafayette currently serves over 900 members. We also offer four sections of the association available to our members, the Young Lawyers Section, the Family Law Section, the Criminal Law Section, and the Real Estate & Transactional Section, along with many different committees and positions which offer members a chance to get involved with the bar as well as with the community. Attorneys and others can make use of our well-furnished law library and get free access to our Westlaw subscription.

To the public, we sell pro se legal forms for divorce, custody, support, name change and others. In addition, our Counsel on Call program through which patrons can receive a free 15-minute consultation of legal advice is offered. We also have our Pro Bono legal services which help those in need to get free legal help. While we do not have any attorneys in our office, you can find a list of our members and their category of legal expertise here
