The IABA is the only national association of Iranian-American judges, attorneys, legal scholars, and law students in the U.S. with over 1,500 members and eight chapters nationwide. The IABA’s mission is threefold: (1) to educate our community about legal issues of interest and ensure that the public and our representatives are informed on such matters; (2) to protect and advance the legal rights of our community; and (3) to foster and promote the achievements of Iranian American legal professionals.
The IABA has quickly risen as a premier minority bar association and has been at the forefront of protecting the rights of Iranian-Americans and other minorities, whether in courtrooms or in meetings with our elected officials.
