Advancing justice is not all that the State Bar of California does. One of its guiding principles is its commitment to ensuring that the public is protected.
A cornerstone of this goal is a responsibility to educate the public, both as consumers of legal services and as prospective attorneys.
We seek public involvement in reporting unethical attorneys. We reach out to consumers about our library of legal guides. We seek public input on our official policies, and we are responsive to requests for transparency in public records.
The State Bar's Five Year Strategic Plan for 2022-2027 focuses all four goals on how they connect with and support with our public protection mission.
