The Northeast Harris County Bar Association was formed as a non-profit organization in September of 1990 to "promote the advancement of jurisprudence, to facilitate and improve the adminstration of justice, to maintain and elevate the standards of professional conduct, to increase professional skills through regular continuing legal education, and to promote and encourage a better understanding of the legal profession by the public."
The membership of the Northeast Harris County Bar Association continues to grow, as does the Association's commitment to providing members with a growing list of services and community involvement opportunities. Membership in the Association is open to all attorneys who live or practice in the northeast Harris County area.
Benefits of Membership
We know that your time is valuable; therefore, the Northeast Harris County Bar Association (NEHCBA) wants to ensure that your participation and involvement has multiple benefits.
From networking to CLE opportunities, NEHCBA provides a local nexus for you to grow professionally and provides a colleague support system in our area. For example, NEHCBA provides every member an opportunity to showcase their knowledge in our quarterly newsletter. But most importantly, we hope that NEHCBA fosters a sense of community for mentorship, personal growth, referrals as well as friendships.
Practicing law is a challenging endeavor. Whether you are a solo attorney, or you are affiliated with a firm, having a strong and available community of lawyers from all areas of practice of law is an important component to your success. We hope that our local bar association will make the practice of law easier and more enjoyable.
