Our Legislative Program
Our Legislative Program

One of the most important things The Iowa State Bar Association does each year is represent its members at the Iowa Statehouse during the legislative session. The association speaks with a unified voice to best represent the interests of the legal community and the profession of law.

Each year, the ISBA’s affirmative legislative program includes proposals for enactment by Iowa’s Legislature for the benefit of Iowa’s citizens.

The ISBA works tirelessly with its members to develop legislative positions that improve the administration of justice in the state. This is accomplished through close collaboration with the ISBA's committees, sections and bar leadership.

Each week, ISBA staff compiles a report on the latest activity related to bills of interest or priority. The weekly Legislative Report also gives members an opportunity to leave comments on bills of interest.
