Blair County Bar Association Home
Blair County was founded on February 26, 1846 out of portions of Huntingdon and Bedford counties. It was named for the Blair family that settled in the area in 1755. Hollidaysburg is the County Seat and the location of the Courthouse. Blair County’s local courts comprise Pennsylvania’s 24th Judicial District. The Blair County Courthouse currently houses six judges with staff as well as the county’s row offices. Blair County has an active legal community that is fostered by the Blair County Bar Association.
Our Mission is to promote the cause of justice by serving our members, our courts, and our community.
We shall advocate high standards of civility, professionalism, and ethical conduct, encourage fellowship and collegiality among our members, and honor our stewardship of the history and traditions of the organization.
We shall facilitate the efficient administration of justice, support the independence of the judiciary, and foster respect for and public understanding of our legal system.
And we shall champion meaningful access to justice for all individuals in our community.
