The Australian Capital Territory Bar Association was established in 1964 as the professional body that regulates barristers in the Australian Capital Territory. It represents the interests of members who practise at the private bar and works towards maintaining a strong and independent bar in the ACT, in the interest of the Canberra community.

Whilst the scope and functions of the ACT Bar Association have broadened since its establishment, its primary goals of promoting the rule of law and maintaining the high ethical standards of the Bar remain in place.
