Message from the President

Welcome to the Oregon Chapter of the Federal Bar Association. Our local FBA Chapter is comprised of approximately 350 federal judges and practitioners, and our organization is the primary source of educational programs and contact with the federal bench in Oregon. Our FBA Chapter hosts monthly luncheons with the judges on the third Thursday of every month at the University Club (1225 S.W. 6th Ave.), we present reasonably priced CLE programs designed for federal practitioners, we co-sponsor social events with the judges (like the terrific picnic at Judge Leavy's hop farm), we produce and update a local Federal Court Handbook, and we produce an award winning newsletter that includes stories about federal events and cases, and legal updates.

We encourage everyone who appears in federal court in Oregon to join our chapter, join us for lunch, attend an FBA sponsored CLE or social event, submit a newsletter story, or any of the above. Our federal courts in Oregon -- the district court, bankruptcy court, immigration court, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals -- are incredibly professional and collegial places to work.
