    The Iranian American Bar Association ("IABA") (Persian: کانون وکلای ایرانی در آمریکا‎) was formed in 2000 in the District of Columbia and is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

    Background

    IABA is organized for charitable, educational, and professional purposes, including promoting the social, economic, professional and educational advancement of the Iranian American community, and the community at large. While headquartered in Washington D.C., IABA is a national organization seeking to expand professional and community relationships by establishing local chapters throughout the United States. Starting with four founding members, IABA''s membership has grown to over 1200 attorneys and law students nationally, with a particularly strong presence in Washington D.C., New York City, and California, but with members also from many other states. IABA recruits the most distinguished members of the Iranian American legal community as its Directors and Officers, and upholds the highest levels of professional integrity and excellence.

    IABA is a non-religious, independent organization and is not in any way affiliated with any other organization. IABA is not a lobbying or advocacy group, but primarily an educational organization. As such, IABA seeks to educate and inform the Iranian American community about legal issues of interest, and to ensure that the American public at large as well as our representatives and other government officials are fully and accurately informed on legal matters of interest and concern to the Iranian American community. In addition, IABA strives to publicize and promote the achievements of Iranian American lawyers and other legal professionals.

    As a 501(c)(3) organization all contributions to IABA are tax deductible.

    Programs and Activities Leadership

    Each year the Iranian American Bar Association convenes an annual membership meeting during which IABA members in good standing review the organization''s accomplishments during the past year, help identify objectives for the coming year and elect a new Board of Directors. IABA has recruited distinguished members of the Iranian American legal community as members of its Board of Directors and as its Officers, who uphold the highest level of professional integrity and excellence. Currently, IABA''s board and an advisory board includes lawyers from several American Lawyer 100 firms, including Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, Perkins Coie, Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, Morrison & Foerster, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, Baker & McKenzie, and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
