How to Get Involved

If we don’t change our direction we’re likely to end up where we’re headed. – Chinese Proverb

In 2013, HB 2480 and SB 1414 failed in committee. In 2015, HB 2629 missed passing by only one vote. If there is no intervening force, it is quite likely that the State Bar as we know it will be eliminated. The only intervening force is us. Or stated more accurately, the only intervening force is you.

Here’s how we can do it.

  • Show your support, and be informed. If you are a current member of the Arizona State Bar and you support maintaining an integrated State Bar, please add your name to our website and show your support by clicking on the link below. We will get in touch with you via the email provided to confirm your support.
  • Contact your representatives in the legislature and tell them what you think. Using the Arizona legislative map on this website, follow these steps:
    1. Find yourself on the map.
    2. Find your district.
    3. And take a moment to sent them a quick email.
      • Here is an example:

“Hello,

I am a constituent and a lawyer. I understand that the Legislature is going to consider several bills regarding lawyer regulation and the Arizona State Bar. The authority to regulate lawyers rests exclusively with the Arizona Supreme Court. The Legislature should not instruct the Supreme Court how it should exercise its authority. That is to say, passing legislation that either disbands or changes the State Bar amounts to dictating to the Supreme Court how it should carry out this Constitutional obligation.

I ask that you oppose any legislation related to lawyer regulation and request that you leave these important decisions to the Arizona Supreme Court.

Thank you,”
