About the Indiana State Bar Association
As the largest legal organization in Indiana, the Indiana State Bar Association empowers its members (lawyers, judges, paralegals, law librarians, law students and court administrators) to thrive professionally and personally. It works to find solutions to members’ professional challenges, connect them with others in the profession across the state, and advocate on behalf of the profession.

ISBA is a voluntary bar—unlike many other states with mandatory bars—meaning licensed attorneys are not required to be members. ISBA is a nonprofit, Section 501(c)(6) organization.
