Annual Membership

Members of the Delaware State Bar Association are part of an organization that enjoy a distinguished and enviable reputation for community service, professional excellence and personal civility.  This reputation has been forged through the decades by those who came before.  To hear and learn from their experiences, please visit the About the DSBA page and click on the links provided to hear their stories.

Dues statements are mailed to members on or about May 15 each year.  Payments must be postmarked by July 1 to avoid a late fee.  Members receive subscription to the Bar Journal magazine, the Delaware Law Review, and a copy of the Delaware Legal Directory, among other member benefits.   Members also are encouraged to join one or more of the Association’s twenty-seven sections at the time they pay their yearly membership dues.  If members would like to join additional sections after paying membership dues, please complete and return this form.  

We encourage non-members to join the Association to receive these and other benefits and to become members of this organization steeped in rich history.  To do so, please  contact Janice Myrick, Director of Bar Services and Membership.
