Committees are a great way to get involved with your local bar association, network with your colleagues and become a leader in your legal community.


We invite you to generously donate a new children’s book or teddy bear gift for children and families taking part in the National Adoption Day event at the Main Court House this November.

Gifts not used will be donated to our family court judges who handle adoptions and custody issues throughout the year.

To participate, kindly drop off your donations of new children’s books or teddy bears at the Palm Beach County Bar Association now through November 1st, 2023. We extend our heartfelt appreciation on behalf of the lawyers for literacy committee.


PBCBA is offering a new book club with one book per quarter that will be promoted to read, followed by a discussion about the book. 

The next book is The Violin Conspiracy by Brendan Slocumb, which unravels a thrilling tale of intrigue and suspense as a young violinist delves into a web of secrets surrounding a rare and enigmatic violin. 

The discussion for this book will be held live via Zoom on Wednesday, October 11, 2023 at noon. Please click here to register. 


On May 12th, the Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Lawyers for Literacy Committee was honored with the Outstanding Community Partner Award at the 2023 Florida Literacy Awards Luncheon for their commitment and dedication to promoting literacy in the community. The Lawyers for Literacy Committee has been instrumental in supporting literacy programs for children in low-income areas and providing resources and training for teachers and parents. This award is a well-deserved recognition of their invaluable contribution to the community.

On July 10, 2023, the Lawyers for Literacy committee hosted a book club meeting to discuss Easy Beauty by Chloe Cooper Jones.  Although it was a small group, the discussion was full of powerful insight, inspirational stories, and friendship.
