State Bar Staff

Who We Are

The State Bar of Michigan is a public body corporate. All persons licensed to practice law in the state of Michigan must be members of the State Bar of Michigan. Here’s how to file a bar application.

Does the State Bar of Michigan discipline attorneys?

No. The discipline system for attorneys in Michigan is carried out through the Attorney Grievance Commission and Attorney Discipline Board. The State Bar of Michigan provides only administrative support to the discipline system operations.

Although the State Bar of Michigan does not discipline attorneys, it does provide assistance through its Client Protection Fund to clients who have been victimized by lawyers who violate the profession’s ethical standards and misappropriate funds entrusted to them.

Does the State Bar of Michigan provide legal advice?

No. Although the Bar cannot offer legal advice, we have lots of help for people looking for legal assistance through our Legal Resource and Referral Center.
