About Us

The Federal Bar Association (FBA), founded in 1920, 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.  Nationally and locally, FBA members run the gamut of federal practice: attorneys practicing in small to large legal firms, attorneys in corporations and federal agencies, and members of the judiciary.  The FBA is the catalyst for communication between the bar and the bench, as well as the private and public sectors.


The Memphis/Mid-South Chapter of the FBA is committed to the interests, education, and professional development of all federal court practitioners in Memphis and the surrounding area.  To promote these interests, we provide learning opportunities and networking events throughout each year, and, as a result, those within the federal bar have the opportunity to network among each other and to interact with the federal bench in Memphis and Jackson, Tennessee.  We encourage all of those who practice in federal court to join the Memphis/Mid-South Chapter of the FBA and benefit from these great opportunities.
