Sponsorship and Exhibitor Opportunities

​​​​​​​​​​The Ohio State Bar Association offers many unique opportunities to connect with the legal community in Ohio. From one-day programs in Columbus or our regional locations, to larger events such as our annual All-Ohio Legal Forum (formerly Annual Convention) and popular practice-specific institutes, the OSBA can connect you or your company with the right people in the legal profession. ​​​​

OSBA Building Sponsorships

More than 7,000 attorneys visit our building in Columbus every year for quality live continuing legal education programming, and we have created opportunities for sponsors to enhance their experience while providing information of your firm, company or product. In addition to the 150+ live CLE seminars held in our building, we host programs in Cleveland, Fairfield, Perrysburg, Akron, Dayton and Wooster, offering regional opportunities for sponsors and exhibitors. For more information see OSBA Building Sponsorships​.​



Practice-Specific Institutes and Programs

Many of our OSBA committees and sections plan practice-specific institutes and programs throughout the year. These events have become "must attend" programs to the respective practitioners who practice in those areas. Due to their size, these programs are often held off-site in larger facilities that can accommodate them. For more information regarding specific sponsor and exhibitor opportunities at these events, click on the individual program title below.​
