The Kelowna Bar Association is a non-profit organization devoted to enhancing the ability of Kelowna’s bar to deliver quality legal services to the public. Our efforts are directed primarily to fostering collegiality within our bar, providing opportunities for continuing legal education, and supporting involvement of lawyers in community initiatives.

Our activities include:

  • hosting monthly lunches for Kelowna lawyers that feature interesting and entertaining speakers, both legal and non-legal
  • hosting receptions when new Kelowna lawyers are admitted to the bar in British Columbia
  • hosting the Battle of the Bar Bands in support of the lawyers benevolent fun (biennial event)
  • running law day at the courthouse (annual event)
  • arranging social events for our lawyers throughout the year
  • providing scholarships to local students (UBC Okanagan and Okanagan College)
  • supporting community initiatives such as the Pro Bono Legal Advice Clinic
