A Bar Association is a professional Body of practicing lawyers. Some bar associations are responsible for the regulation of
the legal profession in their jurisdiction; others are professional organizations dedicated to serving their members; in many cases, they are both.
In many Commonwealth jurisdictions, the bar association comprises lawyers who are qualified as barristers or advocates in particular, versus solicitors.
Membership in bar associations may be mandatory or optional for practicing attorneys, depending on jurisdiction.
These are run democratically and Elections are held on Annual basis. They carry out welfare programs for the Lawyer Members.
