The Iranian American Bar Association (“IABA”) was formed in 2000 in the District of Columbia. Having begun with one chapter and only four founding members, IABA has grown to include nine chapters nationwide and a membership of prominent attorneys, law students, and members of the judiciary.

IABA is a professional organization that seeks to educate and inform the Iranian-American community about legal issues of interest and to ensure that the American public at large, our local representatives, and other government officials are fully and accurately informed on legal matters of interest and concern to the Iranian-American community. IABA also strives to foster and promote the achievements of Iranian-American lawyers and other legal professionals. IABA is an independent, non-religious and apolitical organization. IABA is not a lobbying or advocacy group; it is primarily an educational organization.

IABA is a non-profit organization under section 501(c6) of the Internal Revenue Code.
