Anchorage Bar 2021 Membership Dues – FREE for 2020 Members!

Due to COVID and unprecedented issues everyone is experiencing – 2021 membership is free to all who were members in 2020!  Hopefully we will be able to have a social some time in the near future.  Until then, the Anchorage Bar Association is offering free membership for those loyal members who paid dues in 2020.  All you need to do is go to the tab – “Join/Renew” and create an account or Renew!

We have combined the different types of memberships into one form for ease and convenience.

If you practice within the Anchorage area, you are a voting member and the dues is $65.00.  If you practice in Alaska but live outside the Anchorage area or in another state, you are an associate member and dues are $50.00.  If you are a newly admitted lawyer  and 2020 is your first year of practice, or first year law clerk, your membership is free!  You will need to renew to keep your name and areas of practice listed in the directory.   If you are a second year law clerk, or do not have a bar number, you are an affiliate member and dues are $25.00.

The sooner you send in your dues form and payment, the sooner you can enjoy your LifeBalance benefits!  If you have a question as to completing the form, please email or leave a message at 907-250-4291.  You will be able to renew either by mail, fax or submit on-line.

We appreciate you supporting your local Bar Association!
