About the FBA/OC


The Federal Bar Association of Orange County (FBAOC) is committed to meeting the needs of federal practitioners in Orange County, California by sponsoring important "Bench and Bar" events, CLE events and other social events. These events all focus on issues relevant to federal practitioners and provide an important bridge between the many federal judges in Orange County and the attorneys who practice before them. We encourage you to join the FBAOC and benefit from this great and ongoing dialogue between the local federal bench and bar.
