About the ISBA

ISBA Chicago Meeting Space

The ISBA Chicago Office is located in the heart of the Loop at 20 S. Clark, 9th floor, close to our state and federal courthouses and public transportation. The Chicago Office features six meeting rooms of various sizes (A, B, C, D, E and the Board Room) and a lawyers lounge. Rental fees for each room or combination of rooms are listed below. All rooms feature A/V presentation and conference calling capabilities, available with ISBA usage support for a flat fee of $50 per event. Conference Rooms D and E feature browser-based video conferencing. Conference room rental only includes use of the room and coffee, tea and water. Soft drinks and juice products are available for an additional charge. ISBA staff is not available for secretarial services. Rooms may be reserved up to 45 days in advance of your event; ISBA member groups and CLE receive first priority. Please read the ISBA Policy on Chicago Meeting Space Usage for more information.

ISBA may allow the use of CRO meeting space or offices for depositions or settlement conferences (including mediations or arbitrations) by ISBA members at no cost for space usage, as long as the ISBA member remains on site for the duration of usage. This use is limited to one-time per month, per member. The ISBA member will be responsible for any other costs (court reporter, video technology, beverages, food, etc.). ISBA space shall not be used for non-ISBA CLE or non-ISBA press conferences. Space is based on availability so please contact the Meetings Coordinator to schedule your reservation. Prices do apply to members when reserving space before 8AM, after 5 PM, and for groups larger than 30 people.
