Message from the President
Welcome to the website for the Northern District of California Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.
Our Chapter has approximately 300 members and is one of the most active in the country. We are committed to serving the needs of federal practitioners, Judges, and courts, as well as the Northern District of California community as a whole.
In this campaign season, questions have been raised about whether a federal judge’s personal heritage affects his ability to render an unbiased decision.
While our Chapter takes no position on any specific case, or regarding any political race or candidate, it is our responsibility to respond when comments in the political sphere inappropriately target the judiciary or its members.
