the Bombay Bar Association(Estd. 1862)

The Bombay Bar Association, one of the oldest in the country, is an association of lawyers practicing in the Bombay High Court. The Bombay Bar Association, popularly referred to as the BBA has produced some of India’s greatest judges, lawyers and jurists. Indeed, a list of its past and present members would read like a Who’s Who of the law in India. The Bar Association has given the country several Chief Justices of India, Attorney-Generals, Solicitor-Generals and Advocate-Generals of the State. It is not coincidence, too, that its members, along with other lawyers of the Bombay High Court, played a pivotal role in shaping the destiny of the sub-continent.
