The Hawaii State Bar Association Board

The Hawaii State Bar Association has been a part of Hawaii since 1899, when the Association was founded by a handful of volunteer lawyer members. The organization was incorporated in 1985 and in 1989 became the professional trade association for all lawyers licensed to practice law in Hawaii.

The mission of the Hawaii State Bar Association is "to unite and inspire Hawaii's lawyers to promote justice, serve the public, and improve the legal profession."

The Hawaii State Bar Association Board is compromised of 21 members that develop the guiding policies and principles underpinning its regulatory mission.
