About the Social Security & Disability Section

Launched in 2017, the CMBA's new Social Security & Disability Section:

  • Provides a forum to address the developments in social security and disability law
  • Assists and educates lawyers with Continuing Legal Education programs and CMBA Bar Journal articles
  • Provides networking and business development opportunities for members
  • Partners with the CMBA on pro bono and community service efforts.
  • Improves relationships with the local hearing office administrators and judges through social events and educational opportunities​

  • Contact any of our officers or Melanie Farrell at the CMBA for more information on Section activities!  Programming suggestions are welcome as we plan for our upcoming year.

    CLE Programs

    The Social Security & Disability Section will offer bi-monthly CLE lunch meetings and at least one half-day CLE annually.  The Section is interested in partnering with other Sections and Committees in offering CLE programs specific to the needs of their membership.  The Committee will also assist the CMBA in developing general programming for the needs of the membership at-large.
