North Suburban Bar Association - About us

The North Suburban Bar Association (NSBA) is proud of its long history of supporting the legal community through personal and professional development of its members and providing quality legal support and guidance to Chicago and its Northern Suburbs. The NSBA is comprised of attorneys, judges, and professionals dedicated to professional networking, continuing legal education, civility, and the advancement of excellence in the legal profession.   

The NSBA exists to serve the needs of its membership by advancing professionalism, ethical conduct, diversity, competence, practice development and collegiality in the legal profession.  In addition, the NSBA strives to ensure the fairness and accessibility of the legal system, promote public understanding and confidence in the justice system, and to work closely with the Circuit Court of Cook County to improve the administration of justice.  

Whether you are a new attorney, a seasoned expert, a corporate attorney, a litigator, a specialist, or someone interested in gaining a new understanding or perspective of our legal system, the NSBA is where lawyers and professionals come together to build important relationships.  It is a place where advocates and adversaries come together in the spirit of collegiality and common purpose.  It provides an opportunity for members to hear from community leaders, industry experts, judges, regulators, and policy makers who speak candidly to the Bar about hot practice topics, cutting edge technology, what’s new in the law and where the profession can better itself.  The NSBA provides its members with exposure to the wider legal community and helps them grow into positions of leadership.  The NSBA takes pride in helping its members build extraordinary professional lives and careers.

Throughout the year, the NSBA sponsors monthly meetings and events for professional career and legal development, continuing legal education, fundraising, and community outreach endeavors.  These include the annual Installation Dinner, Holiday Party, Gary Wild Dinner, Law Day, Judges Night, and many others.
