Increase your expertise and expand your professional contacts through participation in CBA and YLS Committees. Meet judges and lawyers who share your interests and concerns, hear a wide variety of expert speakers, help improve the law and administrative procedures which govern your practice area and receive important notice of legislative proposals, written materials and networking events. Over 120 committees meet on a monthly basis (September to June) during the noon hour at CBA Headquarters. There are no special requirements or extra “section” fees to participate in committees. Most CBA and YLS committee meetings qualify for Illinois MCLE credit (in-person or live Webcast attendance - average credit is 0.75 hour). All committee meetings are free, thus this is a great way to earn Illinois MCLE credit at no cost!
