2022 Membership Pricing

Image reads: introducing new membership options for 2022

We’re excited to introduce two new membership offerings for 2022! We’ve consistently heard from you, our members, that you want and need more options.

From the very beginning, CLA has been fully invested in maximizing our impact on the California legal community and profession. It’s what pushed us to pack as much value as possible into our membership, and it’s driving the upcoming changes to our membership structure.

You can now choose what works for you for the 2022 membership year:

  • New! The Introductory membership plan is for members who want a simpler offering. It includes access to CLA-wide benefits.
  • New! The All-Access membership plan is for members who want it all. Be a part of CLA and access all 17 Sections.
  • The Standard membership plan is for members who like things the way they are. It includes access to 1 Section of your choice. New with the Standard membership plan: add additional Sections for only $40 each!

Current members will not have to do anything; we will roll you over into the appropriate membership plan. However, we wanted to inform you of these adjustments as soon as possible for your convenience.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@calawyers.org.
