In the State of Illinois, many people are injured because of the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of an individual or company. These people have the opportunity to file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a lawyer in their state. Unfortunately, not all people that call themselves lawyers are reputable or able to properly launch a lawsuit. Membership in the Illinois State Bar Association is the reassurance needed to insure that an individual is qualified to present a court case in front of Illinois courts.
The Illinois State Bar Association is a voluntary organization dedicated to promoting the interests of the legal profession and improving the administration of justice, the quality of members’ professional lives, and their relations with the public. It also promotes ethics, continued education, and excellence among its members.
All members are provided with several special benefits. Members get subscriptions to the Illinois Bar Journal and ISBA Bar News. High quality but affordable Law Education Series seminars are offered. E-mail case digests, practice updates, and discussion groups give lawyers lightning-fast practice help. A wide array of member services including major medical, life, dental, disability, and commercial crime insurance at reasonable rates are offered. Additionally there is a professional staff in Chicago and Springfield to serve members of the board.
