The Out of State Division (OOSD) of the Florida Bar represents the interests of Florida Bar members who presently reside out of the State of Florida. It is currently estimated that about 14,000 Florida Bar members reside out of state, making such group larger than more than half the state Bars. The OOSD provides a built-in nationwide network of Florida lawyers who can also serve each other. The OOSD's goal is also to keep you informed on matters that are relevant to and affect Florida lawyers, but may otherwise go unnoticed by non-residents, including through the OOSD's State by State Newsletter.
