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

History[edit]

The Wyoming State Bar was organized in 1915 as a voluntary association, and integrated by the state legislature in 1939.

Structure[edit]

The Bar is managed by a 12-member Board of Officers and Commissioners. [2] Supporting the Board are more than twenty Boards and Committees.[3]

The Bar enforces the rule that Wyoming lawyers must complete 15 credits of Continuing Legal Education each year.[4]

The Wyoming State Bar publishes the monthly Wyoming Bar Journal[5] and the biannual Wyoming Law Review which includes scholarly articles by national legal authorities, and case notes and comments written by students at the University of Wyoming College of Law.
