Apply for Membership


The Association is not a formally registered body (legally, only an ‘association of persons’). It does, however, have a body of Rules governing elections, conduct, membership etc.

Membership is open to all those who practice or intend to practice in the Bombay High Court. Applicants are first admitted as temporary members. One year after completing temporary members, an application can be made for Permanent Membership. Permanent members enjoy certain additional privileges and facilities, including the right stand for election to the Standing Committee. Only Permanent Members are allowed to use the premises during the lunch recess.

The Association functions from large premises in Room 57 on the 3rd floor of the High Court Building. A limited food counter serves beverages and limited refreshments. Pay-per-use fax, computer and legal research facilities are available. Designated areas in the Association premises are available for holding conferences.
