The District of Columbia Bar (D.C. Bar) based in Washington D.C. provides the oversight and structures needed to maintain the legal profession's ethical standards and rules of professional conduct within the District. The organization is the largest unified bar in the United States, with more than 108,000 members across 50 states and in more than 80 countries.

In November 2019, following a highly competitive international bid process, i3 Digital was selected to redesign and rebuild the organization's public website ( The prestigious contract award included the design and development of a modern, streamlined and highly user-centric web platform in close collaboration with the D.C. Bar team and key stakeholders. The project involved initially identifying the best .NET based Content Management System to meet D.C. Bar's requirements while also facilitating the seamless integration with NetFORUM the D.C. Bar's association management software.

Kentico Xperience was selected as the right CMS solution for the project, providing the functionality and overarching framework to assist D.C. Bar in achieving the launch of a new easy to use, highly flexible, future-proofed website with integration capabilities. Utilizing our vast experience with Kentico, i3 Digital's team designed and built a modern, responsive, attractive, user-centric website, delivered on a tightly integrated and highly secure platform. 

D.C. Bar's global members now have a seamless single-sign-on experience when accessing their membership information. Registered Members are presented with personalized content based on membership status and interests, which has been facilitated by the integration of Kentico Xperience and NetFORUM.

Bar team were not afraid to challenge us and Kentico to ensure that their detailed requirements were delivered. Caterina and her team at D.C. Bar were highly engaging and made the UX workshops a lot of fun. The team here at i3 look forward to working with D.C. Bar for many more years."
