According to the Society's website:

Membership Is open to all Master Masons who are members of regularly constituted Lodges subordinate to the Grand Lodge of Ohio or subordinate to Grand Lodges with which the Grand Lodge of Ohio is in fraternal relations and are: attorneys-at-law in the State of Ohio, registered as such and in good standing, or who are retired as such; attorneys-at-law from adjacent states who are duly registered and are in good standing in their respective jurisdictions.
Quarterly meetings are planned, and there will also be local societies. as well, to be known as “Magistries”. Plans for the group include continuing legal education courses, lodge education programs, banquets and awards, charitable support, and "preserving, protecting and promoting Masonic Law and Ancient Landmarks through educational programs and materials."

Comments will not appear immediately, so be patient. I am forced to laboriously screen every post because I am constantly bombarded with spam. Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned.
