Practice Area Sections & Committees

To maximize the benefit of BHBA membership, members are encouraged to broaden their involvement through Section and Committee membership.

Beverly Hills Bar Association’s practice area Sections and Committees provide the opportunity to enhance your expertise and your contact list. The 38 active groups span the broad scope of the law, yet each one deals with a key niche area, enabling participants to maximize their membership benefits.

All BHBA members are admitted to The Barristers or Societas Reverenda for free, and are eligible to participate in as many other Sections and Committees and they choose.

Through Section and Committee involvement, you can meet judges and lawyers who share your interests; attend events with peers and expert speakers; deepen your community involvement; and help to improve the law.
