Our Vision & Mission

The Stark County Bar Association was founded in 1900 and has proudly served the Stark County community for more than 100 years. The purpose of the Stark County Bar Association is to work for the general good of the community, to improve the administration of the law in the interests of the public, to promote good relations among the members of the bar, and to further the professional interests of our members.

Our staff is here to serve the members of the association and look forward to working with you. Please feel free to contact the bar office if you ever have any questions. This is what we are here for.


Attorney Jennifer L. Lile took office as President of the Stark County Bar Association when her one-year term began on July 1st.   Attorney Lile became the 100th President, succeeding former president, Attorney Joseph Martuccio.  At the Installation Luncheon held on June 28th the Association’s Elected Officers and Members were sworn in for the 2017-2018 term.


2017 Law Day

The Stark County Bar Association held its annual Law Week May 1st – May 5th.  The SCBA sponsored a wide variety of student contests including a Poster Contest, Essay Contest and Moot Court Competition and offered a Tour de Courts to give students an opportunity to learn and visit our different Stark County Courts.  Other events which took place included an Ask-A-Lawyer at Perry High School, special sessions of the Fifth District Court of Appeals that traveled to GlenOak High School and a Naturalization Ceremony at Massillon Washington High School.  In addition to the various contests, Rex. W. Max Millender was awarded the Liberty Bell Award.  Everyone received their award at our Annual Law Day Luncheon with our special Keynote Speakers Joe D’Ambrosio and Father Neil Kookoothe.  The luncheon was then followed by a 3 hour “Transforming American Democracy and E-Filing Update” Seminar.

More than 180 hot dogs, along with potato chips and other items, were served by Stark County Common Pleas Court Judges, SCBA Community Involvement Committee Members and members of the Courthouse Bicentennial Committee as we continue to celebrate the courthouse bicentennial.
