As a member of the Association, you are part of an organization with a more than 175-year history. More important, you are part of an organization whose mission is to serve its members and Detroit by supporting the ethical, successful practice of law and fair administration of justice through networking, practice development and community service.
Member benefits include members only opportunities like the DMBA Inn of Court, Judicial Candidates Evaluation Committee ("JCEC"), and "behind the bench" events. Benefits also include reservable access to spacious, convenient conference and meeting rooms. Members enjoy discounts on events, of course, as well as on services at our Attorney Resource Center (the "Lawyers Lounge" at CAYMC). Members also have the opportunity to increase their visibility through profiles, recognition and contributions to our BarNews and website, or by writing a column for the DMBA's Cheers From the Bar, published periodically in the Detroit Legal News. Members can help drive the activities of the organization by participating in the planning and development of events. And they can help support the broader Detroit community by supporting the initiatives of the DMBA Foundation.
Your DMBA membership is valid for 12 months from the date it commences, and membership dues are based on your length of time in practice.
