The Corpus Christi Bar Association’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. For the cost of $150 per year, members receive free or reduced cost entrance to Bar events including many continuing legal education seminars, the opportunity to join various law sections, the opportunity to participate in the Lawyer Referral Service, and FREE WI-FI at the courthouse. Joining the CCBA also ensures that you receive invitations for networking and CLE events, volunteer and pro bono opportunities, and general news about our legal community.
Criminal Defense, Family Law, and Appellate Sections
The CCBA has three sections within its organization, Appellate, Family Law, and Criminal Defense. Throughout the year, these sections meet to conduct business and network, and also host various CLE seminars, many of which are free. If you are already a CCBA member and would like to join the Appellate, Criminal Defense, or Family Law section, please contact the Bar office and we will add you to the section email blast lists. These sections are free to join with your CCBA membership.
Corpus Christi Young Lawyers Association
The Corpus Christi Young Lawyers Association is a division of the CCBA for all members who are under the age of 37 as of June 30, 2017. If you meet this criterion, you are automatically enrolled as a member of the CCYLA. Membership in CCYLA is free with your membership to the CCBA.
Senior or Honorary Membership
If you have been a member of the Corpus Christi Bar Association for more than 20 years and spend fewer than 20 hours a week practicing, you are eligible for senior membership with no dues requirement.
Lawyer Referral Service
Joining the Lawyer Referral Service is a great way to connect with the community and increase your client base. There is a need for lawyers who practice all types of law – consumer, criminal, elder, family, immigration, personal injury, and all others. Potential clients call the CCBA and are screened generally for their legal issue, location, and willingness to pay for legal counsel (this is not a pro bono service) and are then directed to a lawyer with a correlating area of practice. The fee to join the Lawyer Referral Service is $125 per year.
Judges and Justices: $150
Private Practice: $150
Government/Public Interest (Non-Profit): $75
Out of County/Military: $75
