The purpose of the Association is to promote the due administration of justice, uphold the honor of the profession of the law, cultivate relations among its members, and to correlate its activities with other bar associations on a representative basis in the interest of the legal profession and the public generally.
The Association holds monthly meetings from September through May, culminating in its annual dinner at which its officers for the ensuing year are installed. Meetings are held at various Czech restaurants in the Chicago area, and feature authentic ethnic cuisine and speakers on topics of cultural, professional, and local interest.
