Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. Bar Association
Cultivating Excellence & Inclusion in the Legal Profession
The Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. Bar Association is the oldest and largest association of Black attorneys in Miami-Dade County, Florida. This year we celebrate our 40th anniversary. From inception, our members have sought to remove the barriers to full inclusion into the legal community in Miami-Dade County. The Ferguson Bar continues this rich legacy by providing a voice for Black legal professionals and the communities we serve.
Formerly known as the Black Lawyers of Miami, for over forty years, the Ferguson Bar has served the Miami-Dade community by cultivating excellence and inclusion in the legal profession, promoting diversity in legal education through financial assistance and mentorship and advocating for equal access, equal opportunity and equal justice in the legal system. In 2003, the organization changed its name to honor the contributions and legacy of the late Judge Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. We invite you to join us.
