Throughout its history, the PBA has played an active role in legislative affairs and legal reform. The PBA supports, among numerous other issues, judicial reform measures, funding for legal services and pro bono participation. Public image has been of concern to members of the association for many years, and recent bar presidents have played an important role in enhancing the image of the profession. Women and minority lawyer participation has grown in recent years, due in large part to increased awareness of bar leadership to the expanding number of women and minorities in the profession.
From the original 592 charter members, the association has grown to more than 27,000 members. As the Pennsylvania Bar Association continues its tradition of service to the profession and public, members are being confronted with new legal reform measures, debates over whether law is a profession or a business, quality of life issues and advancing technological changes. Although society and the day-to-day pressures of practicing law have changed over the years, the cooperative effort that was the basis for the establishment of the Pennsylvania Bar Association is as relevant today as it was in 1895.
