The Out-of-State Division
provides an organization for all Florida Bar members who reside
outside of the state of Florida. The Division focuses not on
any specific practice area, but rather on the common interests
and needs of out-of-state Florida Bar members as a whole.
The Division works toward the goal of ensuring
equitable treatment for in-state and out-of-state Florida Bar
members. To this end, the Division constantly reviews and monitors
legislative and Bar proposals to try to ensure that out-of-state
practitioners are placed on equal footing with their in-state
The Division also promotes professionalism
and competence of its members, as well as networking and resource
opportunities for out-of-state Florida Bar members. This is
done through a series of continuing legal education (CLE) seminars,
social events, a quarterly newsletter, and this website.
This website is intended to be a useful
tool for Division members and visitors alike. Among other things,
you can find out information about the Division and its officers,
locate an out-of-state Florida Bar member, find out about CLE
requirements and opportunities, and get a listing of upcoming
events. You can even join the Division.
