The Mecklenburg County Bar - Who Are We?
By Hon. Carla N. Archie

The Mecklenburg County Bar has gathered voluntary demographic information on our Bar members for more than five years. Based on the information we have gathered, here is a snap shot of who we are as the Mecklenburg County Bar. You may be surprised.

First, as of January 2015, we are 5001 members strong.  We are growing by approximately 200 members per year, though during the year we have many members coming and going. In the first quarter of 2014-15, more than 400 members joined the Mecklenburg County Bar, and about the same number left us.  Although some of this change in membership is due to some of our members passing away or becoming inactive, the majority of this change is simply due to attorneys moving in and out of the county. This change in membership numbers suggests a fluid and transient membership. Attorneys move into the area and out of the area. Read More
