The ISBA has established a list serve for all ISBA Sections to help them communicate better. These list serves are to be used as a professional communication tool amongst members within a specific interest group. The ISBA will use these list serves to communicate important information with our members as well. To be part of this service, you must be a member of that section by September 30 of the current year.

NOTE: the list serve archives are currently unavailable. We hope to restore this functionality at a future date.
Sending to a List Serve
Sending an e-mail to a list serve is the same as e-mailing a person or group, except that the e-mail will go to all registered members of that section, except for those who have unsubscribed from the list serve.
NOTE: Your list serve is as follows: (listname)@iabar.org (for a full listing of 'lists', click here)
(i.e. members of Administrative Law Section would address email as this: email@example.com - see list of ISBA list serves above for complete list)
Attachments to list e-mails must be less than 5 MB in size. Also, the attachments cannot have the following extensions: .zip, .scr, .pif, .exe, .bat, or .com. These restrictions are to help curb virus attacks.
Replying to a List Serve
Replying to a list serve e-mail, you simply select the "Reply” option and this will reply to the list serve, meaning all members of that list. Choosing "reply" to a list message will reply to the ENTIRE list, not just the individual sender. You must enter that person’s email address in the TO block if you want to email them individually.
NOTE: if your mail program has a feature to automatically add a contact from an incoming message, note that the sender address would be (example for probate section) "firstname.lastname@example.org”, and you will need to edit out the "-owner” in your contact list, or else posts you create from your contact list will only go to the list administrator, and not the list members.
