Welcome to the Fresno County Bar Association
Our Association has been active for over 130 years and during that time has acted as the center point of the legal profession in the Central Valley. This website is your gateway to the activities and services which we provide to the legal community and members of the public.

In addition, the Bar Association provides services to members of the public who are having difficulty finding an attorney to consult regarding a pending legal problem. If you find yourself in that situation, click on “Attorney Referral” also listed under “Services”.
Lastly, as a member of the Bar Association you can take advantage of the MCLE Self Assessment Tests offered under the “Resources” tab to assist you in meeting your continuing legal education requirements.
As we move further into the 21st Century, the Bar Association is evolving, and striving to provide the types of services and opportunities needed in our ever-changing world. Let us know what you need from us, and together we can continue to provide opportunities for professional and personal growth across the wide spectrum that is today’s legal profession.
