Federal Bar Council

The Federal Bar Council is an organization of lawyers who practice in federal courts within the Second Circuit. It is dedicated to promoting excellence in federal practice and fellowship among federal practitioners. It is also committed to encouraging respectful, cordial relations between the bench and bar.

It was founded in 1928 and created as a separate organization by act of the New York State Legislature, effective April 1932, under the name "the Federal Bar Association of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut." It adopted its current, shorter name in 1968.
