CBA National Sections and Forums


The Canadian Bar Association has 31 specialty groups, or Sections, that focus on substantive areas of the law and the legal profession. More than 25,000 members participate in our CBA National Sections.

CBA National Forums represent common interest groups. Through them, members can enjoy a unified voice and structure in which to operate, with special activities tailored to meet each group’s needs.

Our active volunteers analyze trends, address issues, develop tools and resources, participate in committees, and contribute to CBA professional development and advocacy work on important legal matters. They provide valuable leadership, expertise and insight, serving our members’ professional needs.
