About Us

The South Asian Bar Association (SABA) of Chicago was established on September 13, 2000, when it held its inaugural reception in the James Parsons Ceremonial Courtroom at the federal courthouse in Chicago.

The Honorable Marvin E. Aspen, Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, administered the oath of office to the SABA Chicago’s officers and directors. Since that reception, the officers and directors of SABA Chicago have actively engaged in steering the association to serve the South Asian community.

Our mission includes promoting the professional growth of our members; mentoring law students and new lawyers, providing services to our local community; and partnering with other minority organizations. 

SABA Chicago is not a law firm and does not make attorney referrals or provide legal services to individual clients. We will be unable to reply to such requests

SABA is an affiliate of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association ("NAPABA").  NAPABA is an umbrella bar association comprised of local Asian American bar associations, as well as individual members. Since 1987 NAPABA's affiliate organizations have played a key role in publicizing and addressing Asian American legal issues.  The affiliate organizations continue to be vital to NAPABA, alerting the organization to local issues across the nation and providing a reservoir of tested local leaders who can then contribute to and lead NAPABA at the national level. SABA members enjoy complimentary membership to NAPABA. Please contact membership at membership@sabachicago.org for more information.
