The Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) is the state’s premier bar association. Founded in 1877, this voluntary bar association has more than 30,000 members and is the largest bar association in Illinois. Similarly, its goals are also wide reaching and expansive. The bar association seeks to not only serve its members, but also shape laws and legal discourse on both a state and national level. It also aims to educate and support the public in the areas of representation and other services.

Those looking for an attorney in Illinois should be sure to review the Illinois State Bar Association’s large member directory, the IllinoisLawyerFinder, at some point during their search. While other bar associations may better specialize in a particular practice area, the sheer breadth of the Illinois State Bar Association’s database makes it a worthy resource. In addition, the public can also peruse a wide assortment of informative legal self-help guides and other educational resources available for free on the ISBA website. The Illinois State Bar Association even offers ratings on judicial candidates up for election.

There are a lot of benefits that come with being listed as a member of the Illinois State Bar Association. Not only will attorneys be listed in the largest and most popular lawyer referral database in the state, but they’ll also have access to a plethora of online and live CLE course options. In addition to networking events and career help, membership also gives attorneys access to the bar association’s many online and print publications, including the Illinois Bar Journal.
