The IABA serves the professional development of its attorney members through hosting events such as CLE classes and networking opportunities at IABA events.  The IABA has informed Iranian-Americans about legal matters of concern and engages policymakers on behalf of the Iranian American community toward improving the laws and regulations that impact our community.  Examples of such educational activities are IABA's participation in the Iranian-American Know your Rights Campaign, co-sponsored with the ACLU and Amnesty International and IABA's publication of an independent report concerning the detention and treatment of Iranian nationals by the INS in implementing their NSEERS special registration program.  IABA's NSEERS report was successfully presented in two bi-partisan briefings in the U.S. Senate (July '04) and the House of Representatives (October '04).
