LACBA Delegation to the Conference of California Bar Associations
The mission of the Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA) is to serve justice in California by bringing together attorney volunteers from across the State representing diverse backgrounds, experience, and expertise to seek, debate, and promote creative, non-partisan solutions to law-related issues.

"I have been a Los Angeles Delegate to the Conference of Delegates for over 30 years. I stay involved because I enjoy the intellectual stimulation in studying and hearing of areas of concern in the profession with which I'm not directly involved as well as the issues I know something about. I enjoy the debate--which at its best can be riveting--at times entertaining and humorous. And most of all I enjoy the people--the lawyers--young and old who come year after year, to listen to one another debating the issues of the day, who enjoy one another." - John Van de Kamp, former District Attorney of Los Angeles and former California Attorney General
