The Cobb County Bar Association was honored with the Law Day Award of Achievement and Best Website Award for voluntary bar associations with more than 500 members, presented June 6 during the annual meeting of the State Bar of Georgia.

The Law Day Awards of Achievement recognize local bar associations for excellence in planning and carrying out activities in their respective communities to commemorate Law Day on May 1.

The Best Website Awards are presented to local and voluntary bar associations with a website exemplifying excellence in usefulness, ease of use, content and design in meeting the needs of the website’s targeted audience.

The State Bar of Georgia, with offices in Atlanta, Savannah and Tifton, was established in 1964 by Georgia’s Supreme Court as the successor to the voluntary Georgia Bar Association, founded in 1884. All lawyers licensed to practice in Georgia belong to the State Bar. Its more than 45,000 members work together to strengthen the constitutional promise of justice for all, promote principles of duty and public service among Georgia’s lawyers and administer a strict code of legal ethics.
