Over 116 Years of Service

Since 1906, the Oneida County Bar Association has existed to maintain the honor and dignity of the profession of law, cultivate social relations amongst its members and promote the due administration of justice. Our association continues the 115 year tradition with our many networking opportunities, an extensive continuing legal education program, 16+ committees, many events throughout the year to partake in and the opportunity for members to give back to our community. We also exist to connect the public in need of legal services with our members through our very successful lawyer referral program.
