Criminal Law Section

The Criminal Law Section is an organization that seeks to connect practitioners of criminal law across the county. We host MCLE events every other month, including intersectional events with other Contra Costa County Bar Association Sections and MCLEs that provide Criminal Specialization and Legal Ethics credits. We are always open to hearing from section members about what they are interested in learning about or discussing with this fabulous group of folks.

This group also serves as a way to share information and offer opportunities to publish work or present an MCLE yourself. By working together we are stronger and provide better representation for our clients and support for one another.

We are always looking to expand our leadership, if interested please contact Ashley Bargenquast or Anne Wolf at
