SERVING OUR MEMBERS AND OUR COMMUNITY Since 1948
The Gate City Bar Association is the oldest African-American Bar Association in the State of Georgia.
I am honored and excited to serve as the 2023 President of the Gate City Bar Association. I would like to thank all of our members, sponsors and partners that have supported Gate City throughout the years. We look forward to your continued support. If you are new to Gate City, we invite you to learn more about us, to become a member and to support our programs.
The Gate City Bar Association was organized by ten African-American lawyers to provide the educational, social and community involvement of a professional association for African-American lawyers. This year we celebrate our 75th anniversary of service to our members, the legal profession and the community.
The Gate City Bar Association’s purpose is rooted in service. In furtherance of our purpose, we work diligently to serve the legal profession and the community through our programs and volunteerism. Among our many other programs and initiatives, we:
Provide continuing legal education programs to the legal community.
Participate in the selection of federal, state, and local judges.
Coordinate the efforts of our members to promote the welfare of the community.
Part of our mission is to encourage persons of outstanding promise to attend first-rate law schools and return to the communities that need their services most. We are dedicated to helping these individual succeed and serve through our annual Summer Law Camp for high school students, through our Summer Associate Program and career workshops for law students and by awarding scholarships each year at our Hall of Fame Gala.
