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. Our 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 Federal Bar Association, Puerto Rico Chapter is the third largest in the nation. Since established, the FBA Puerto Rico Chapter has been recognized as one of the best chapters nationwide. This recognition demonstrates our level of commitment with our valuable members providing constant seminars, social events with the members of the Federal Bar including judges, civic and academic activities for general public, and by conveying the concerns of our membership to the judges and the Clerk's office.
