Become a Member of the The Jamaican-American Bar Association (J.A.B.A.)

The Jamaican-American Bar Association (J.A.B.A.) is extremely excited for the New Year and a new direction for the organization. While the organization has been active for the past few years, they are looking to continue the dynamic trend of previous leadership and further establish new roots in the South Florida community. They anticipate such involvement will assist in advancing the profile of Jamaican Legal professionals; while also creating awareness of their presence so that our community can look to them as a resource.

J.A.B.A. intends on effectuating such goals by hosting professional mixers; building connections to the legal community in Jamaica; and consistently keeping the community abreast of accomplishments through the local media and press. In an effort to facilitate accomplishing their objectives, organizing their membership structure is imperative.

To be a member in good standing, all members must fill out an application. Membership dues will be in the amount of $50.00 for practicing attorneys; $0.00 for Judges and students; and $25.00 for non-lawyers.
