Message from the President

Welcome to the District of Columbia Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.

The DC Chapter’s geographical proximity to our nation’s capital allows us to offer programs that address the hottest legal and political issues of the day. Senior government officials are regular speakers at the popular monthly Immigration Law Luncheons, offered free to DC Chapter members. Our annual full-day program on Current Issues on Government Investigations, most recently featuring the Hon. Kenneth W. Starr and many other distinguished panelists, is free to DC Chapter members. The Distinguished Lawyers Luncheons, held at the U.S. District Court, honor luminaries such as American Lawyer’s 2017 Litigator of the Year Neal Katyal, former Watergate prosecutor Earl Silbert, and former U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli. The DC Chapter also hosts networking events and happy hours that are a great way for lawyers of all backgrounds to grow their professional contacts. And our partnerships with other voluntary bar associations allow DC Chapter members to attend their programs at a substantial discount.

The District of Columbia Chapter welcomes inquiries from members and prospective members. If you are interested in participating in one of our programs or serving on our Board of Directors, or if you just want to know more about us, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Ruth Vernet
President
