Young Lawyers Programming

Be the Lawyer You Want To Be!

Starting in the 2018-19 membership year, all young lawyers who have been called within the last three years receive complimentary auto-enrollment as Materials Members of either the South or North Young Lawyers Section. All current articling students will receive complimentary auto-enrollment as Materials Members of the Articling Student (South) Section (for those articling students in Southern Alberta), or the Young Lawyers (North) Section (for those articling students in Northern Alberta). With a Materials-level Membership, you can:

  • Receive notices of all meetings of the Young Lawyers North or South Section or Articling Student Section.
  • Have access to meeting materials for all meetings of the Young Lawyers North or South Section or Articling Student Section, including handouts, PowerPoint presentations, and meeting recordings.

You also have the option to upgrade to a Full Section Membership in your local Young Lawyers Section or Articling Student Section. Please contact your local CBA Alberta office to upgrade your Section membership. In addition to the above benefits, Full Membership in the Section also gives you:

  • Attendance at all in-office Section meetings, including professional development and lunch.
  • Discounts on special events such as hockey games, pub nights and more.
