Federal Bar Association

The Federal Bar Association (FBA) has more than 16,000 members. It was founded in 1920 to advance the science of Jurisprudence and promote the administration of justice; to uphold a high standard for the federal judiciary, attorneys representing the U.S. government, and attorneys appearing before the courts, agencies, and departments of the United States; to encourage friendly relations among members of the legal profession; and to promote the welfare of attorneys. Continuing Legal Education and professional and community services are among association activities. FBA is affiliated with the National Lawyers Club and the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association. Publications include Federal Bar News (monthly), a monthly placement newsletter, Federal Bar Journal (quarterly), and Legislative Update. The association holds annual meetings in late summer.

The FBA gives its members a chance to meet at regional and national conferences, become active in informed discussion of Substantive Law issues, assume leadership positions at the local and national level, and network with other professionals in the field of federal law.
