The Hudson County Bar Association was founded in 1877 as a nonprofit professional organization for attorneys. We are conveniently located in the historic Justice William Brennan Courthouse, 583 Newark Avenue, 4th floor, Jersey City, NJ.
The Hudson County Bar Association mission is to promote a professionalism and legal camaraderie within the legal community, to aid in the administration of justice, to enhance the delivery of and access to quality legal services, to educate the public about the legal system, and to actively participate in the success of the community at large. We strive to accomplish these goals through our numerous active committees, sections, divisions and community programs as well as educational programs provided for and by our members, along with a variety of social events.
Members of the Hudson County Bar Association work to improve the profession, the community in which they live and the administration of justice. Today, more than 600 local attorneys contribute to the Bar's mission by attending social functions and seminars as well as volunteering legal services.
Lawyers in good standing with the Hudson County Bar Association are eligible to obtain a Hudson County Lawyer ID issued by the Hudson County Sherriff’s Department located next door to our offices in the Superior Court of New Jersey, 595 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ.
