Past Presidents



Past FBA Presidents

On January 5, 1920, a group of government lawyers met at the U.S. Department of Interior in Washington, D.C., to create a new association which would focus on promoting the welfare of all federal judges and attorneys.

The Federal Bar Association's 438 members elected James W. Witten, who was serving as chief law officer of the General Land Office at the Department of Interior in Washington, D.C., as the first president.

The Honorable Gustavo A. Gelpí is currently serving as the Federal Bar's 86th president.
