Federal Bar Council
- New York
The Federal Bar Council (the “Council”) is a 501(c)(6) membership organization of lawyers who practice in federal courts within the Second Circuit. Many of the top litigators in the Second Circuit belong to the Council and are active in the organization. All of the judges in the Second Circuit are also members of the Council ex officio.
The Council is dedicated to promoting excellence in federal practice and collegiality among federal practitioners. It is also committed to encouraging respectful, productive relations between the bench and bar and to serving the interests of its members. Its 501(c)(3) sister organization, the Federal Bar Foundation, (the “Foundation”), lends financial support to promote public service, historical exhibits, lectures, educational programs and publications.
