MANATEE COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION, INC.
Fostering Professionalism in the Practice of Law
|The Manatee County Bar Association is located in Bradenton, Florida,
along the shores of the Manatee River and the Gulf of Mexico, south of Tampa Bay.
In 1963, when the
association was officially incorporated, the stated purpose included “inculcating in its
members the principles and duties of service to the public, improving the administration of
justice and advancing the science of jurisprudence among the members; maintaining the highest
standards in the profession of law in the County of Manatee and in the State of Florida; and
maintaining and promoting social and recreational gatherings in order to provide for a
cooperative spirit among the members of the Bar and their families.”
||While the faces have changed and the
practice of law has evolved, the MCBA has remained steadfast to that purpose, fostering a
unified, professional and mostly harmonious bar association with a rich history of service
among the bench, the bar, and to the public. Its members continue to nurture a small town
communal spirit while adapting to and embracing the growth and change that is reflective of
the County of Manatee.
