Government Attorneys

About the Government Attorneys Section

The Government Attorney Section is a resource of value to attorneys that represent government agencies in the Cleveland area and helps integrate government attorneys into the work of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association. 

The Section focuses on the legal work performed by our member government agencies and the lawyers who perform these legal services. 

Section Activities

Bar Journal

Section members are invited to submit articles on their areas of interest for the CMBA Bar Journal.

CLE Programs

We co-sponsor the Annual President's Day Municipal Law Update with the Northeast Ohio Law Directors Association.  We also host the required Ohio Public Records training as part of this seminar, giving our members a convenient option to fulfill this requirement.


Our meetings feature a networking lunch and then a one-hour CLE presentation on a topic of interest to government attorneys.  We know that budgets are tight, so we offer free CLE to our Section members at our meetings.

We generally meet every other month, on the second Tuesday.  Join us!
