News & Publications

There is so much happening at the CMBA. Stay up-to-date on the news and events at the CMBA through our website and online calendar

We also work to keep members informed through our press e-communications and other publications, including our daily CleMetro Bar Briefs that provides members with news and updates on the Association, CLEs, activities, community programs and more at a quick glance (usually 3-5 items per email) with links to more information. Bar Briefs also includes links to relevant local, national, and international legal stories to keep members up-to-date.

Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Journal - magazine produced monthly to share timely legal topics, Association news, recap recent events and promote upcoming activities of the CMBA and Bar Foundation. Opportunities are available for advertising and members can author articles and columns.

Legal Directory - produced annually, this is a 'go to' book for Northeast Ohio's legal professionals for court contact information, law firm mailing addresses, attorney phone numbers and email addresses, and more.
