The Chicago Chapter of the Federal Bar Association (FBA) represents and supports federal practitioners and judges throughout the Chicagoland area. We consist of more than 600 members, and offer a wide variety of programs and events for judges and attorneys engaged in federal practice. Members receive exclusive access and pricing for certain programs and events, many of which provide CLE credit. Our Chapter’s many committees organize seminars and presentations, facilitate networking and advocacy opportunities, and assist students and the less fortunate. Members of the Chicago Chapter automatically receive membership in the national Federal Bar Association, whose mission is to strengthen the federal legal system and the administration of justice by serving the interests and needs of federal practitioners in public and private practice, the federal judiciary, and the public they serve. The Chicago Chapter represents the Eastern Division of the Northern District of Illinois.
