Join Sections

Enhance your skills, gain a competitive advantage and give back to your profession. Our Section and Committee members network with legal professionals from across Canada and around the world, including bar leaders, judges, government officials and in-house counsel. These contacts can be critical to your long-term professional growth and help make you invaluable to your firm.

Review the Section Handbook for a list of Sections (note Construction Law is a new addition), meeting dates and valuable topics.

2017-18 Section Handbook


Sections run from September to May and registration for the 2017-2018 section year is now open. There is no fee to join Sections.  Section registration ensures you receive email notification of upcoming Section meetings.  When you confirm attendance you will be charged a meal cost recovery fee which is currently $31.50.  You only pay for the Section luncheons you register for or attend.  You must be a CBA member to join and participate in Sections.

Not a member of a Section, if you are a CBA member you can still attend a Section meeting but you will not receive notifications of upcoming meetings and you will need to pay the luncheon cost.
