From 1946 to 1980 several initiatives were taken for the formation of an association to bring all the lawyers of Assam under one umbrella. The first attempt was a convention organized at Jorhat in the year 1946 where the idea of “Assam Lawyers Association” was mooted. During Assam Movement, on 4th May 1980, members of different Lawyers of Associations of Assam met and decided to constitute an Adhoc non political federal body named All Assam Lawyers Association. With the support of the majority of Bar Associations of Assam, in a convention held on 18th to 19th April, 1981 in, Guwahati, the present All Assam Lawyers Association (AALA) was formed under the Presidentship of Late Nar Narayan Goswami. The first conference of AALA was held in Nagoan in 1982 in presence of great Legal luminaries of the country, like Sri Ram Jethmalani and the then Member of Parliament, Late Dinesh Chandra Goswami. After glorious existence of 25 years, in January 2006, the AALA has celebrated its Silver Jubilee in presence of the then Chief Justice of India Justice Mr. Y.K. Sabharwal. Mr. Justice H.K. Sema, Mr. Justice B. Sudarshan Reddy and Mr. Justice M.K. Sarma of Supreme Court of India also attended the said function to extend their solidarity.

The membership of the Association is open to all the Bar Associations of Assam and the management of its affairs is vested in an executive committee elected in a Biennial Conference. At present 38 Bar Associations representing more than 12,000 lawyers of the state are members of this Association.


During Assam Movement AALA, extended its service by giving aid to the victims and also took active part to diffuse the situation endangering human life and property of citizens of Assam. The AALA from its inception is always trying to promote friendship and unity not only amongst its members of legal fraternity but also amongst the general public to uphold dignity, liberty and fundamental rights of the citizens.

All Assam Lawyers Association has been actively striving for the reform of Administration of Justice and law and its healthy development to suit the socio-economic and legal needs of the people of Assam, to apply knowledge and experience in the field of Law and for the promotion of the public good, maintenance of the Rule of Law, provide free legal aid to the poor and needy people and to uphold the honour, dignity and independence of the Bar as well as legal profession.
