Why I Am a CLA Litigation Section Member

The State Bar Annual Meetings ended in 2017. Those meetings played a significant role in helping me become a better litigator. While I was skeptical about going to in-person MCLE classes, which I thought would be boring and expensive, I discovered I was wrong after attending a few. I learned so many things to make my law practice better. I wish I had gone when I first started practicing law.
My participation in State Bar meetings changed my life. I thought I knew what the classes would cover, but I was wrong. Whatever the course topic was, I found the interaction with the speakers as well as colleagues in the audience to be helpful. The cost of the conference paid for itself many times over with at least one good idea that changed the outcome of one of my cases.
