The Southwest Bar Association is a professional and social group of over 350 attorneys who practice in the southwest suburbs of Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. Our membership includes attorneys who practice alone, those who practice in small or large law firms, those employed by corporations, and those employed in governmental service.

The SWBA works year round to provide the community with information. We have an attorney referral program as well as a pro-bono program available to the community. Founded over 50 years ago, the SWBA is very active during the entire year with fundraising events, CLE seminars, golf outings, judges night, charity events, scholarships, and other social and educational gatherings. For more information, visit the Events and Announcement links on this site.

Attorneys who wish to apply for membership with the SWBA only need fill out the application and submit the membership fee to be considered eligible for membership. We meet once/month at Ciao in Palos Hills at 4:30. Contact us at for more info on meeting dates.

If you have questions about the bar association, please feel free to contact us.
