Hellenic Bar Association of Illinois - Greek organization in Warrenville IL

Hellenic Bar Association of Illinois

In February 1951, a group of Greek attorneys founded the Hellenic Bar Association of Illinois (HBA), the largest and oldest Greek American bar association in Illinois. Most of the early members were born in Greece, came to this country as young immigrants and were educated in colleges and law schools in Chicago, while in most cases, working their way through school. As time passed, more first-generation Greek American lawyers became members as they were products of an ethnic culture that mandated learning and education. Today, the Hellenic Bar Association consists of multi-generational Greek Americans and Philhellenes.

The purposes of this organization are: to promote friendly relations among its members and the members of the Bar generally, the Courts, and the public; to cultivate respect and esteem of the public for the legal profession, and to do all things necessary and proper for the advancement and improvement of the law and the administration of justice; to be consistently on the alert in protecting the interests of the general public against legislation inimical to its welfare; to oppose anti-social and discriminatory legislation; to champion the cause of American traditions and ideals; to diligently strive for the betterment and the welfare of the people of the United States; to advocate and uphold the ideal of equal rights of all mankind; to oppose any and all attempts by the persons within or without to overthrow our form of government by force.
