Dear GSBA Members, Friends and Supporters:
On behalf of the officers and members of the Garden State Bar Association, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. The GSBA is New Jersey's oldest and largest professional organization for African American judges, lawyers and law students. Since 1975, the GSBA has continuously assisted African-Americans and other ethnic minorities in becoming an effective part of the judicial and legal systems. The Association also seeks to advance the science of jurisprudence, improve the administration of justice, support initiatives designed to improve economic condition of all individuals, and eliminate discrimination and inequality based on racial, ethnic or sexual considerations.
Our website showcases our programs and projects designed to pursue, support and facilitate the implementation of these goals. I hope that you will join us and I look forward to working with you as we advance our position, reaffirm our purpose and chart our progress.
Yours in Service,
dara aquila govan, ESQ.
PRESIDENT, GARDEN STATE BAR ASSOCIATION
