Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA)

The ISBA is a professional organization that represents over 32,000 lawyers and students throughout the state of Illinois.  The ISBA is dedicated to promoting the interest, integrity, and high standards of the legal profession.

As a member of the Law School Division, you receive monthly editions of the Illinois Bar Journal.  Your membership automatically enrolls you in seven substantive law section newsletters including Tort Law, Real Estate Law, Criminal Justice, Trusts and Estates, Civil Practice and Procedure, and others. You are eligible for nomination for the ISBA Public Service Award recognizing the efforts of the ISBA membership.  In addition to participation in local law school sponsored activities, students may also gain admission to the ISBA Law Education Series Programs and seminars throughout the state.

As a student member, you gain an invaluable introduction to the services and opportunities provided by the ISBA. Many law school organization affiliations end at graduation.  However, your relationship with the ISBA is one that will grow and mature well beyond your law school experience.  Membership is free for law students.  For more information on becoming a member, visit the ISBA student membership page

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact one of the ISBA representatives at the law school.
