The Clearwater Bar Association (CBA) was founded in 1930 when lawyers and judges began meeting on an informal basis. Today, the CBA has close to 1,000 members, and serves the legal profession and community working for the greater good of its members and the community at-large. The CBA aims to promote professionalism and competency in the legal community through quality educational programs and enhanced opportunities for interaction.

CBA members enjoy opportunities for pro bono service, Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits, monthly luncheons, annual events, and regular networking and socializing events. Members have the opportunity to join sections focused on specific areas of the law which provide information and education specific to the various practice areas. The CBA also offers the opportunity to join committees which allow members to become involved in coordinating and planning events. Joining the CBA is an investment in your career.
