History of the Riverside County Bar Association

The Riverside County Bar Association (RCBA) was created in 1894 to encourage social interaction between the bench and the bar. Over the years, we have evolved into a professional organization (see bylaws) that provides many valuable services to both our member attorneys and the public.
