"A bar association is a professional body of lawyers. Some bar associations are responsible for the regulation of the legal profession in their jurisdiction; others are professional organizations dedicated to serving their members; in many cases, they are both."

PS: By "OAB" I mean, of course, "Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil".

Hope it helps. ;)
