Message from the President

A Message from Our President Lawrence R. Scheetz, Esq., 

Thank you for visiting the Bucks County Bar Association website.  This website is a great place to find information about the Bucks County Bar Association and how we can work together for the advancement of the legal profession. 

The Bucks County Bar Association consists of approximately 900 members of the legal profession.  The
members of the Bar Association are judges, lawyers, law clerks and support staff, who are all fortunate enough to reside or work in Bucks County.  Through participation in the Bar Association each member has the opportunity to socialize with one another, learn from each another, elevate the legal profession and provide support to the local community through our charitable arm, the Bucks County Bar Foundation.  On this website, one can learn more about our rich history and view all of the resources that are available through the Bar Association. We also provide the BCBA Mobile App to allow everyone to obtain
this information when not at a computer.

I am thrilled to begin this year with our new Executive Director and an incredible, diligent and loyal staff.  As President, I look forward to bringing together our members and providing us all more opportunities to participate in-person and assume leadership roles.  Our various committees, sections and divisions are working hard planning programs and events for our membership, as well as diligently working on new policies and updating our strategic plan.  These committees, sections and divisions are working together now more than ever to provide the right amount of programming to the most amount of people at each event.  The BCBA is coming together as a unified organization to provide new member benefits and services to maximize the value of your membership.  Each member can attend, participate and lead. 

As we emerge from the pandemic, I feel very fortunate to have had the support and camaraderie of our Bench and Bar to guide our Association to the point.  I encourage each member to please take advantage of the resources that are offered through the Bar Association.  Please actively participate in a committee, section or division, review the weekly newsletter for important news, attend CLE offerings and activities, join our Wellness Program, visit the Bar Association Building for depositions, client meetings and social events, and enjoy our quarterly magazine, The Writs. Now is the time to take advantage of all that is offered through the Bar Association, and I promise you will receive incredible benefits in return.      

Thank for you the opportunity to lead this great Association and I look forward to seeing all of our members throughout the year.  Please feel free to reach out to me, at any time, with questions, ideas and comments.

Very truly yours,  

Lawrence R. Scheetz, Jr., Esquire

Bucks County Bar Association President
