About Us

We are the heart of the Oakland County legal community. We enrich the lives of our members, serve the profession, and help others.

The Oakland County Bar Association (OCBA) was formally established in 1934 by a small group of young attorneys for the express purposes of connecting Oakland County legal professionals with their colleagues, advancing and enriching the profession, serving the public, and promoting camaraderie. The OCBA began its rich history in a small office in Pontiac with just under 50 members. Monthly meetings were held in local restaurants or law offices.

Today, the OCBA has more than 3,000 members, organizes dozens of committees, and boasts a strong partnership with our community. The OCBA continues to grow and excel as a voluntary legal organization for attorneys, judges, paralegals, law professors and law students in Oakland County, Michigan. The OCBA is headquartered in Bloomfield Hills, a short distance from the Oakland County Circuit Court campus.

As the largest voluntary bar association in Michigan, the OCBA has built a strong reputation on its services and activities for members. The OCBA is committed to public service projects, committee work, and lending an influential voice on current legislative activities and court rules.
