Conference of California Bar Associations

The Conference of California Bar Associations brings together attorney volunteers representing bar associations around the State to seek, debate, and promote creative, non-partisan changes to the law for the benefit of Californians.

Founded in 2002 as the successor entity of the State Bar’s Conference of Delegates, the Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA) is attended by attorneys from every practice area representing bar associations across California. For three days, delegates meet, debate, and vote on resolutions authored by their peers and reviewed by the Resolutions Committee. Resolutions that pass the Conference are eligible for inclusion in the following year’s legislative program. Since 2010, CCBA has been a driving force in the Legislature, serving as the source for over a hundred bills than have been signed into law, more than any other organization.

Do you have an idea for a resolution to improve the law? Do you enjoy lively debate about matters affecting the public or the legal profession? If so, please contact your local bar association about forming a delegation to attend the next Conference or consider joining an existing delegation from any of the bar associations listed below:
