Bringing the Legal Community Together

At the CMBA, we believe that, together, we can advance our profession while also enhancing individual careers and enriching our community. Membership in the CMBA provides open access to the only local association that uniquely serves the entire Greater Cleveland legal community. Our driving goal is a simple one: to be an indispensable resource for every legal professional within our community.  

The CMBA offers a broad range of programs, services and networking opportunities relevant for any attorney, regardless of age, length of time in practice or practice setting. 
We also serve paralegals and other legal professionals who are critical to our profession and to our justice system. We proudly offer dual memberships with both the Cleveland Association of Paralegals and the Lorain County Bar Association. In addition, we welcome law students in an effort to help them connect with and learn from experienced members of our legal community.
