The Federal Bar Association (FBA) represents the federal legal profession. We consist of more than 16,000 federal lawyers, including 1,200 federal judges, who work together to promote the sound administration of justice and integrity, quality and independence of the judiciary. The Chicago Chapter has over 550 members and offers a wide variety of programs and events for judges and attorneys engaged in federal practice. The Chapter also has a variety of federal practice subcommittees to facilitate networking and advocacy opportunities.
The mission of the FBA is to strengthen the federal legal system and administration of justice by serving the interests and the needs of the federal practitioner, both public and private, the federal judiciary and the public they serve.
