American Bar Association
The American Bar Association was formed on August 21, 1878, and is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. Prior to its existence, the legal profession consisted primarily of sole practitioners who trained under an apprenticeship system. The A.B.A. sought to advance the “science of jurisprudence.” By the end of the 20th century, the group of 100 lawyers had grown to an association of 375,000 members.
 
The American Bar Association is a voluntary, nongovernmental association of American lawyers and judges. Its mission is to serve as a national representative of the legal profession, promote justice, professional excellence, and respect for the law. It also helps ensure that all people have access to legal services, and encourages improvements in the legal profession as well as in the administration of justice.
