The Rhode Island Bar Association's website at serves as a source of information and provides contact information for its attorney members, as well as for members of the public.

Governance & Structure

A Bar President, who serves a one-year term from July 1 through June 30, three Officers of the Bar, an elected House of Delegates, which meets quarterly, and an Executive Committee, which meets monthly, govern the Association. The Association holds an Annual Meeting in June. In fulfilling its stated purposes, the Bar's programs and activities are designed to serve the needs and interests of the membership, the public and the administration of justice. Standing and special committees direct much of the programming of the Rhode Island Bar Association. Standing committees are created by the Bylaws for the investigation and study of matters relating to the accomplishment of the general purposes, and business of the Association. Committee members are appointed by the incoming Bar President and serve for one-year terms, which may be renewed. The Bar's Governance & Bylaws may be accessed here:
