The Nebraska State Bar Association (NSBA) is the integrated (mandatory) bar association of the U.S. state of Nebraska.

History[edit]

In 1937, the Nebraska State Bar Association was created by order of the Nebraska Supreme Court .[2] The predecessor to the Nebraska State Bar Association was a voluntary organization, the Nebraska Bar Association, founded in 1899.

Structure[edit]

The NSBA is governed by a policy-making House of Delegates, whose members are elected based on representation, and an Executive Council consisting of one delegate elected from each of Nebraska's six Supreme Court districts, a chair and chair-elect elected by the House of Delegates, and a president, president-elect, president-elect designate and immediate past president elected by active NSBA members.

The Bar enforces the rule that Nebraska lawyers must complete 10 credits each year.[3]

NSBA publishes Nebraska Lawyer Magazine, a monthly publication.[4]
