Formed in 2002, the Conference of California Bar Associations (formerly known as the “State Bar Conference of Delegates”) is a non-profit organization. The heart of the Conference of Delegates is the delegations that represent more then 30 voluntary bar associations across California.
Those representative bar associations include legal specialty, minority, local and regional bar associations across the state of California.
The mission of the Conference of California Bar Associations is to "serve justice in California by bringing together attorney volunteers from across the State representing diverse backgrounds, experience, and expertise to seek, debate, and promote creative, non-partisan solutions to law-related issues."
The objectives of the Conference are to improve the laws and the administration of justice in California while advancing the science of jurisprudence in California. Participation in the CCBA is open to and encouraged from all local, minority, statewide and specialty voluntary bar associations in California.
Founded in 2002, the mission of the Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA) is to “serve justice in California by bringing together attorney volunteers from across the State representing diverse backgrounds, experience, and expertise to seek, debate, and promote creative, non-partisan solutions to law-related issues.”
CCBA recognizes the important role that voluntary bar associations in California play in mobilizing attorneys who volunteer their time to develop creative, non-partisan solutions to law related issues. Each year some 300 authorized delegates from the various bar associations participate in representing their delegation at the Conference of Delegates meeting. The meeting is held concurrently with the State Bar Annual Meeting.
Delegates are assigned to study groups based on their area of practice.The delegates draft, analyze, discuss and vote on more than 100 resolutions on a wide range of issues. Resolutions concern the legal profession and the people of the State of California, and are designed to promote the administration of justice, the education of the profession and the public concerning the justice system and laws, the science of jurisprudence, professional excellence, or respect for the law.
