"I think it is terrific that practitioners have the opportunity to take advantage of the MBA’s outstanding Continuing Legal Education Programs as part of their membership. These programs allow MBA members to keep up on recent developments in the law, improve practice skills, hear from outstanding experts in many areas of practice and enhance their professional experience by networking with colleagues with similar interests."

“The MBA has provided some tremendously useful benefits over the 30-plus years that I have been a member. This year’s free education benefit is a terrific example of how the MBA has made an extraordinary commitment to the excellence of our profession and enhances the MBA's abundance of mentoring, networking opportunities, access to Lawyer Referral Service, fee arbitration, Casemaker, and more. You simply can’t get all of this anywhere else. I truly believe that now more than ever the MBA is an invaluable resource to every lawyer. Use it! Join the MBA!”

“The MBA is an important lifeline for all attorneys, whether in practice two or 22 years. As a member I have access to cutting-edge CLE programs that are available both in person and On Demand — and, starting this year, CLE programs are now free to all members! The MBA has helped me forge lasting friendships with fellow young attorneys and has provided me with a support network of seasoned attorneys. I couldn't imagine navigating the early years of my career without the MBA and I can't put a price tag on the innumerable benefits of an MBA membership.”
