Represent LACBA as a Conference Delegate
LACBA members are encouraged to apply for positions on LACBA’s Delegation to the 2018 Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA).
CCBA brings together approximately 350 attorneys from across the state representing diverse backgrounds, experience, and expertise to seek, debate, and promote creative, nonpartisan legislative solutions to law-related issues for the benefit of all Californians. Following the annual conference, CCBA works to mold the legislative agenda in Sacramento by having its lobbyist work with California legislators on bills based directly on the resolutions passed at the conference.
LACBA’s Delegation is the largest delegation in the state and has enjoyed tremendous success over the years by having many of its own resolutions passed by the CCBA and then passed through the legislature to become law.
Participating in the delegation is not only an opportunity to improve laws and promote justice in California, but it is also an opportunity to enjoy camaraderie and networking with an esteemed community of attorneys who are passionate about a broad cross-section of California law.

What Delegation members are saying…
"I have been a Los Angeles Delegate to the Conference of Delegates for over 30 years. I stay involved because I enjoy the intellectual stimulation in studying and hearing of areas of concern in the profession with which I'm not directly involved as well as the issues I know something about. I enjoy the debate--which at its best can be riveting--at times entertaining and humorous. And most of all I enjoy the people--the lawyers--young and old who come year after year, to listen to one another debating the issues of the day, who enjoy one another."
-- John Van de Kamp, former District Attorney of Los Angeles and
former California Attorney General
