All legal practitioners who are called to the Gambia Bar and are of good character are entitled to become members of the GBA upon payment of a membership fee and annual subscription fees. The application form and fees for membership can be obtained by GBA headoffice .
There are approximately 200 legal practitioners admitted to practice in the Gambia, most of whose chambers or practices are located within the Banjul area. However, a third of those admitted to the bar are currently working outside the jurisdiction.
Most legal practitioners are sole practitioners within small chambers or practice as partners or limited partnerships.
