Substantive Law Sections

In addition to the connection and belonging we value so highly, it is the collegiality, friendship and professional development borne of Section membership that inspires so many members to participate. Section membership also offers a range of leadership opportunities within the Bar Association and allows our members to remain connected and actively engaged in our Bar community.

SCCBA Sections are groups of attorneys with practices largely dedicated to specific areas of substantive law. These groups gather regularly to discuss issues of particular interest and collaborate to present educational seminars and noontime “brown bag” programs that offer our members free CLEs. Sections may also hold social events, roundtable discussions, and assist attorneys in their practice areas. These Sections are an additional $35 fee to join.

Sections marked with an asterisk* are unique in that the Chair of each these sections, by virtue of their office, is entitled to a voting seat on the Board of Trustees. This honored status is made pursuant to our Bylaws.
