Sections & Committees

SABA Sections are either related to a specific legal practice area or a particular objective of the SABA Mission.  They are intended to be standing in nature unless otherwise specified, and operate outside of the SABA Executive Committee term.  Sections are open to all SABA members in good standing.

SABA Committees are formed to exercise a particular SABA goal, initiative, or function.  SABA has Standing Committees and Annual Committees, and members are selected as governed by SABA’s bylaws.  Additionally, the SABA President may create ad hoc committees as necessary to execute any goals, initiatives, or functions of the organization with the consent of the SABA Executive Committee. 

If you would like to get involved with leading or joining a Section or Committee, email the Executive Director at


The SABA Leadership Institute is an innovative leadership program designed to "mind the gap" in leadership development for mid-career attorneys and provide these attorneys with the tools they need to navigate the field and reach the top ranks of the legal profession.

Starting in January 2021, SABA will bring together its first fellowship class of diverse mid-career attorneys with 10-15 years of experience. Over the next 8 months, through virtual sessions, these fellows will learn from each other, seasoned SABA attorneys, and experts in the field.
