About the Corpus Christi Bar Association
The fiscal year of the Corpus Christi Bar Association runs from July 1 to June 30. Membership includes a variety of benefits, including: prompt access to courthouse news and judicial announcements, various free continuing legal education seminars, free membership in all sections, and the opportunity to participate in the Lawyer Referral Service. Joining the CCBA also ensures receipt of invitations for networking, volunteer and pro bono opportunities, and general news about the legal community.
CCBA Area of Practice Listings
The CCBA offers 128 Area of Practice (AOP) listings which are an inexpensive way to advertise in the CCBA print and online membership directories. CCBA members receive two FREE AOP listings annually and additional AOP listings are available for $10 each.
CCBA Sections: Appellate Law, Criminal Law, Family Law, Real Estate & Probate
The CCBA includes four sections which are free to join with CCBA membership: Appellate Law, Criminal Law, Family Law, and Real Estate & Probate. Throughout the year, these sections meet to network and host free CLE seminars (currently via Zoom).
The Corpus Christi Young Lawyers Association
The Corpus Christi Young Lawyers Association is a division of the CCBA for all members age 40 or under on June 30th of each calendar year and attorneys who have been licensed for less than five years, regardless of age. If you qualify, you are automatically enrolled as a member of the CCYLA at no additional cost.
Lawyer Referral Service
Joining The Lawyer Referral Service is a great way for attorneys to connect with the community and increase client base. The LRS panel is in need of lawyers who practice in all areas – civil, consumer, criminal, elder, family, immigration, personal injury, and many others. Potential clients contact the CCBA through an online form and are screened for their legal issue, location, and willingness to pay for legal counsel. NOTE: This is not a pro bono service; inclusion in the LRS means a commitment to provide a reduced consultation fee only; attorneys are free to dictate their own payment arrangements once the client agrees to representation. After screening, the potential clients are connected to a lawyer on the LRS panel with a correlating area of practice by way of an automated wheel system. Please contact the CCBA office for more information on joining the Lawyer Referral Service.
