Idaho Chapter

The James A. McClure Federal Building and United States Courthouse. Boise, Idaho

Welcome to the website of the Idaho Chapter of the Federal Bar Association!

The Idaho Chapter of the FBA has more than 150 members, including practitioners throughout the state -- from Pocatello and Idaho Falls in the east, from Coeur d'Alene, Moscow and Lewiston in the north, and from the southwestern portion of our state, including the capital city of Boise.

The Idaho Chapter was formed in 2004, and was created to advance the FBA's mission, which is to strengthen the federal legal system and administration of justice by serving the interests and needs of the federal practitioner, both public and private, the federal judiciary, and the public they serve.

The Idaho Chapter supports these goals by providing members with relevant and high quality CLE programs, opportunities to engage in informal interaction with the judiciary, and opportunities to advocate with legislators for the improvement of the Federal Courts

Your membership in the Idaho Chapter also entitles you to benefits from the national FBA, including many learning, networking and leadership opportunities. If you are not a member already, you can download a current membership application here.

Chapter President, 2017-18
