About Us

With nearly 400,000 members, the American Bar Association is the largest voluntary professional membership organization in the world. As the national voice of the legal profession, the ABA works to improve the administration of justice, promotes programs that assist lawyers and judges in their work, accredits law schools, provides continuing legal education, and works to build public understanding around the world of the importance of the rule of law.

The Communications and Media Relations Division of the American Bar Association is responsible for the voice of the ABA. The division provides a wide range of services for ABA officers, the Government Affairs Office, and ABA sections, commissions and centers. Our work combines law, media, and public policy. Activities vary widely, can change quickly, and include: news conferences, press briefings, editorial services, online media, satellite media tours, press releases, event publicity, interview placements, strategic planning, media training, crisis communications, video/audio news releases, and briefing papers.
