The Santa Clara County Bar Association needs you to join if you are not a member already and get acquainted with all the wonderful opportunities at the SCCBA.
Develop your practice by creating your public directory listing, joining the lawyer referral service or visiting our career center.
Members subscribe to our Code of Professionalism and are sure to keep their nose clean with access to our Center for Ethics and Professionalism.
Reference our on-line CLE 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so you have enough “recognition and elimination of bias” before your reporting period and manage all of your CLE with our new CLE Management feature.
With all you can do on-line you many never need to leave your home or office again, but if you like us virtually, you’re going to love us live and in person. Attending events at the bar office allows you to meet other members and often times local judges. If you aren’t good at remembering names don’t worry. Just cruise the member directory or judicial profiles after an event to bone up on the who’s who.
I don’t know about you, but I’m as busy as I’ve ever been and between running my office and raising three kids it isn’t always easy to get involved. Have a look at all our volunteer opportunities to see what excites you. My personal favorite is the High School Mock Trial Tournament. If you haven’t volunteered as a scoring attorney this year get it on your to-do list for next year.
We’re not a rock band so we don’t have groupies but we do have a HUGE number of devoted supporters in our sections and committees. If you haven’t been involved in one of their executive committees you don’t know what you’re missing.
Many wonderful opportunities await you at the Santa Clara County Bar Association. I hope that you get involved knowing that you are needed and leave every meeting, seminar, event or function having that feeling returned to you many times over. I know I do.
If you are a member who feels the same way please reach out to others and spread the word.
