Happy New Year 2018! It’s now official … we’re all members of the brand new, California Lawyers Association (CLA) following a separation of the former Sections of the California State Bar into this new, independent organization. The CLA’s website may be found at cla.legal. The CLA’s website remains a work in progress but it does contain useful information in a FAQ section that, for example, advises that current section memberships have automatically been transferred to the CLA and continued membership status can be renewed via the State Bar annual dues statement or online via the State Bar’s “My State Bar Profile.” The “My State Bar Profile” will also remain the place to confirm section membership (and licensing) status. Information specific to each section, including educational offerings, will soon be listed on the CLA’s new website.
