The Contra Costa County Bar Association and its sections present several MCLE programs and special events each month. CCCBA members receive a discount on events, and section members can save even more!

To browse and register online for upcoming events, please visit our calendar. To view section-specific events, please visit the Section-Sponsored MCLE Events page.

CCCBA members can view their CCCBA MCLE history and print out attendance certificates by logging on to their account and clicking on 'My Past Events'. Please note that attorneys are responsible for tracking their own hours, and for reporting their compliance to the State Bar of California (see State Bar MCLE information below). If audited by the State Bar of California, you will need to provide your certificates of attendance and your record of self-study activities. The State Bar of California provides a Personal MCLE Log form you can use to keep track of your credit hours.


Paid registrations are required for all MCLE programs and events. There is no guarantee that space will be available unless you have an advance registration. Please register online for events, or send your registration with a check (payable to CCCBA) to Contra Costa County Bar Association, Attn: Anne Wolf, 2300 Clayton Road, Suite 520, Concord, CA 94520.

Please note reservations can only be held for 10 minutes beyond the start time. At that time seats are considered "no-shows" and may be given to other attendees.
