What is the South Suburban
Bar Association?

The South Suburban Bar Association (SSBA) was founded in 1940 by attorneys who practiced in the south suburbs of Chicago. Today, it is a vibrant social and professional organization of over 100 attorneys who live and work in the area. Our Association provides social and networking opportunities to help attorneys stay connected.

Our Mission

  • To encourage a high standard of professional ethics among lawyers
  • To promote a better understanding between the legal profession and the community
  • To cultivate a better fraternal and social atmosphere among its members


Why Should I Join?

The association provides valuable continued legal education for all of our members: pro bono and charity work; expert attorney referrals to the community; and many social events for lawyers, including monthly membership social hours, an annual golf outing, and the annual holiday party. Take advantage of these opportunities to obtain CLE credits, interact with other attorneys and make connections.
