DLA was created in 1985 as a local bar association organized to address the concerns of African American attorneys living and practicing in DeKalb County. At the time of DLA’s inception, DeKalb County had only one full-time African American judge. DLA has been instrumental in helping increase the diversity of the judiciary in DeKalb County.

DLA was born thirty years ago and has remained relevant by conducting legal workshops, presenting in schools, evaluating judicial candidates and providing thousands of dollars in scholarship monies to deserving law school students. To have our State Bar President with us to mark this thirty year milestone is truly an honor.” President of DeKalb Lawyers Association, Mawuli Mel Davis, Esq.
