Mecklenburg County Bar 26th Judicial District - Mandatory Membership

The Mecklenburg County Bar (MCB) is the 26th Judicial District subdivision of the North Carolina State Bar and is a mandatory judicial district bar.  All attorneys licensed in North Carolina who practice law or live in Mecklenburg County must be a member of the MCB. 

Every active member of the North Carolina State Bar residing in the state of North Carolina is deemed a voting member of the district bar in the judicial district in which the member resides. Unless informed to the contrary, the State Bar assumes that the address maintained for each member in its official records is indicative of the judicial district in which he or she resides. N.C. Gen. Stat. 84-34. A lawyer may elect to participate in the district bar where he or she practices (if different than where he or she resides) by informing the secretary-treasurer of the North Carolina State Bar of his or her decision in writing. N.C. Gen. Stat. 84-16.
