The LCLCBA dates back to 1965 and is now one of the biggest Specialist Bar Associations with a current membership of approximately 1,500 barristers.

Because of its broadly-based and large membership, the Association is in a strong position to protect and advance the interests of its members and to influence developments in civil law and practice.
