Welcome to the Berkeley County Bar Association (BCBA)

Providing attorneys and the public access to legal information and resources

We are here to help, so feel free to contact us for further information

Get Started

The goal of the BCBA

To assist attorneys and the courts of South Carolina in advancing the legal profession through competent and ethical representation of the citizens of our communities. Our member attorneys are licensed members of the South Carolina Bar and may also practice and hold bar memberships in other counties of the state. We promote the exchange of ideas and information amongst our member attorneys and serve as the hub of legal communication in our community.

We are dedicated to advancing the practice of our attorney members and providing the public access to competent and ethical legal representation.


For attorneys:

Helpful resources, newsletters, information about continuing legal education seminars, committee reports and more.

For the public:

Access to the legal community is important so we offer a directory of our members and sponsor free legal seminars/workshops.
