The Nebraska State Bar Association is an 9,300-member professional association of lawyers and judges dedicated to improving the administration of justice. Its offices are located on the second floor of the Roman L. Hruska Law Center at 635 S. 14th St., Lincoln.
Founded as a voluntary Bar in 1899, the NSBA was integrated by order of the Nebraska Supreme Court in 1937. It is one of approximately 40 unified (mandatory) bar associations in America.
A House of Delegates and an Executive Council govern the NSBA. The House of Delegates has members elected based on representation and is the official policy-making body of the profession in Nebraska. The Executive Council consists of one delegate elected from each of Nebraska's six Supreme Court districts, a chair and chair-elect elected by the House of Delegates, and a president, president-elect, president-elect designate and immediate past president elected by active members. .
