The Federal Bar Association

The Federal Bar Association (FBA) is dedicated to the advancement of the science of jurisprudence and to promoting the welfare, interests, education, and professional development of all attorneys involved in federal law. Our members run the gamut of federal practice: attorneys practicing in small to large legal firms, in corporations and federal agencies, on Capitol Hill and members of the judiciary.

As the professional organization for private and government lawyers and judges involved in federal practice, the FBA has offered an unmatched array of leadership opportunities and services for more than 80 years. Whether its working with an oversight agency on new regulations that could impact federal practice or acting as an advocate on a particular initiative — the FBA advances effective practice before the federal bench and federal agencies.
