State Bar Offices Temporarily Closed

The State Bar of Georgia’s offices will remain closed until further notice. We are monitoring CDC guidelines and information from the Georgia Department of Health and will reopen our offices when it is safe to do so. With this, all events scheduled for any State Bar facility during this period have been cancelled. Although our offices are closed, all of our staff are telecommuting, and they will remain available to assist you when needed, understanding of course, there may be slight delays in providing that assistance.
