Practical Skill Building

Law school teaches you how to think like a lawyer. Your local bar can teach you how to practice like one. When you jump into our Sections & Committees, you can hone your skills, meet the best-of-the-best, get known, and so much more.

Real World Transition

Let us supplement what your career services office can do with our own job board, clerkship opportunities, new lawyer training, and personalized programming focused on helping you land your first lawyer job. Plus, your law student membership is active through your Bar Admission. Right now, we are offering numerous live streaming CLE programs that are free to you. Check them out today! 

Have Fun with Us

From our annual Halloween Run, to Rock the Foundation, we offer countless exclusive opportunities for our law student members to engage in fun ways here at the CMBA.

Volunteering Opportunities

It's not too early to join us in giving back to the community. As a law student, volunteer alongside practicing attorneys. From inspiring high school students and helping the homeless to assisting in pro-se cases, our many programs allow you to get connected and make a difference.  Learn more and volunteer here.
