Services Offered:

The Supreme Court of Guam is responsible for the admission, discipline and regulation of the Guam Bar membership. The Board of Governors of the Guam Bar Association, which consists of the President, Vice- President, Secretary, Treasurer and two members at large, oversees the operations and administration of the Bar. The Guam Bar Ethics Committee, a standing committee of the Bar appointed by the President and confirmed by the Supreme Court of Guam, is responsible for accepting complaints and imposing discipline on members which may constitute violations of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct adopted by the American Bar Association. Other standing committees of the Bar include Programs and Public Relations, Legislative Liaison, Continuing Legal Education, Library, Legal Aid and Lawyer Referrals, and Judicial Liaison.

Join The Bar

To become a member of the Guam Bar Association, it is necessary to first be admitted to practice law in the courts of Guam.  To qualify for admission to practice law in Guam, a person must adhere to the Supreme Court of Guam’s Rules Governing Admission to the Practice of Law. Those Rules can be found on the Board of Law Examiner’s section of the Judiciary of Guam’s website at http://www.guamcourts.org/BrdLawExam/board.html.  Once an individual has been sworn in by the Supreme Court of Guam, they can (and must, as the bar of Guam is fully integrated and mandatory) become an active member of the GBA in order to practice law on Guam.
