Since the founding of our Parent Chapter, The Justinian Society of Lawyers, in 1921, this venerable institution has become one of the largest ethnic bar associations in the United States.

Our members are among the most active and influential in the legal profession. The society takes great pride in its contributions to the practice of law and to the administration of the justice system.

Like any successful organization, The Justinian Society is dependent on the involvement of its members. Perhaps it is the commonality of Italian heritage or the fellowship of professionals; it is nonetheless gratifying to observe the consistently high level of participation of our members. For these reasons, the society continues to grow as a dynamic force in the legal community while retaining a special place in the heart of each member.

We echo the mission of our parent organization, the Justinian Society of Lawyers, and aspire to:

  • Foster a spirit of friendship through social and professional events
  • Continue and improve the legal education of our members
  • Render mutual aid and assistance to our members
  • Promote the general welfare of our members by preparing them for the practice of law

Our members enjoy free membership in the professional chapter and access to unique social and networking events with members of the Chicago-area legal community, including judges, attorneys, and lawyers exploring a variety of alternative careers within and without the legal field.
