Since 1979, the National Association of Bond Lawyers has promoted the integrity of the municipal market through the education of its members in the laws affecting state and municipal bonds. NABL serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas as to law and practice, giving members valuable tools to help them continually improve the state of the art in the field. 

We also provide commentary and recommendations at the federal, state, and local levels with respect to legislation, regulations, and rulings affecting bonds, and on occasion submits friend of the court briefs or memoranda in connection with court or administrative proceedings.
