Iranian American Bar Association San Diego Chapter

Iranian American Bar Association San Diego Chapter The San Diego Chapter of the Iranian American Bar Association was founded in 2008 to bring together the Iranian-American lawyers and judges.

The San Diego Chapter of the Iranian American Bar Association was founded in 2008 to bring together the Iranian-American lawyers and judges in the San Diego area. In addition to providing resources for local lawyers, we also are here to assist the greater Iranian-American community. IABA National Organization

The Iranian American Bar Association ("IABA") was formed in 2000 in the District of Columbia and is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. IABA is organized for charitable, educational, and professional purposes, including promoting the social, economic, professional and educational advancement of the Iranian American community, and the community at large. While headquartered in Washington D.C., IABA is a national organization seeking to expand professional and community relationships by establishing local chapters throughout the United States. Starting with four founding members, IABA's membership has grown to over 600 attorneys and law students nationally, with a particularly strong presence in Washington D.C., New York City, and California, but with members also from many other states. IABA recruits the most distinguished members of the Iranian American legal community as its Directors and Officers, and upholds the highest levels of professional integrity and excellence. IABA is a non-religious, independent organization and is not in any way affiliated with any other organization. IABA is not a lobbying or advocacy group, but primarily an educational organization. As such, IABA seeks to educate and inform the Iranian American community about legal issues of interest, and to ensure that the American public at large as well as our representatives and other government officials are fully and accurately informed on legal matters of interest and concern to the Iranian American community. In addition, IABA strives to publicize and promote the achievements of Iranian American lawyers and other legal professionals. As a 501(c)(3) organization all contributions to IABA are tax deductible.

Happy Nowruz, the Persian New Year, from us to you and to your families! 🌸🌺🌺🌸Nowruz, the festival of the spring equinox, means “new day” in Persian. This ancient festival has been celebrated for at least 3,000 years. Nowadays, Nowruz is celebrated by Iranians of virtually all different religions and ethnicities, across the globe. It is observed in many countries and regions, such as Iran, Kurdistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

Bucs' female coaches look forward to the day they are "no longer newsworthy" - ProFootballTalk

Iranian American women making history!

For the first time ever, this year’s Super Bowl will include two full-time female coaches, including Iranian American Maral Javadifar.

Javadifar's parents are Iranian immigrants who fled Iran after the revolution and came to the U.S. hoping for a brighter future. After a childhood in the U.S., Javadifar, known as MJ, became a college basketball player who went on to earn a doctorate in physical therapy along with a degree in molecular biology.

Kate Sowers became the first female coach in a Super Bowl a year ago with the 49ers. This year, Maral Javadifar and Lori Locust are coaching in the big game for the Bucs. Javadifar (pictured) is the team’s assistant strength and conditioning coach and Locust the assistant defensive line coach. “...

Special thanks to our outgoing President, Bita Ashtari, and fellow board member for volunteering their time and energy to make great things happen in our community, including networking mixers, MCLEs, career and education panels, law student mentorship, sponsorship of our sister organizations and charity fundraisers.

Join us on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 6-7 p.m., for a virtual celebration of the ancient Persian festival of Yalda (known as Shab-e Yalda in Persian). It is the celebration of the Winter Solstice, which means the longest night of the year in the Northern hemisphere. This night marks the renewal of the sun and the triumph of light and goodness over darkness. Traditionally, Iranians celebrate Shab-e Yalda (Yalda Night) with an all-night get-together with their families, while eating nuts, dried fruits, watermelons, pomegranates, and delightful pastries. A favorite tradition is reciting poems by one of the most beloved Persian poets of all time, Hafez, who lived during the 14th century.

Although we are unable to host an in-person event this year, this is a great occasion to meet up for a virtual mixer! Bring your favorite beverage and/or snack as well as your favorite verse from Hafez’s poems to share with others!

Please send a message to us here or an email to [email protected] to receive the Zoom invite.
