Membership in the ABA

Welcome to one of the world’s largest voluntary professional associations. 

When lawyers need to be heard, the ABA is their voice both nationally and globally.  We work to promote judicial independence and ensure funding for the Legal Services Corporation.  We also promote the international rule of law through programs in more than 40 countries that focus on access to justice, human rights, anti-corruption, judicial reform and more. 

The ABA provides resources to help our members become better lawyers.  Each year, the ABA creates more than 3,200 hours of CLE and hosts 800 in-person events around the world.  We publish more than 1,000 books, magazines and journals.  We help broaden our members’ perspectives and help them exchange views through 1,000 online forums.
