As the practice of law becomes more specialized, and life in the legal profession becomes increasingly more complex, the Association offers its members the opportunity to increase their expertise and expand their professional contacts through membership in its many sections and committees. Membership in sections allows lawyers to meet colleagues who share their interest in a special field of law, to receive section publications and to receive advance notification of proposed legislation.

For more information on Sections, visit Sections of the Bar or contact Janice Myrick, Director of Bar Services and Membership.
