Following Governor Lamont’s declaration of civil preparedness and public health emergencies, the Connecticut Bar Association (CBA) continues to monitor the advice of local and state health officials, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the uncertainty of the virus and the immediate impact on our state, Law Camp 2020 has been canceled.

The safety, health, and well-being of our members, our staff, and the greater community in which we all live and work is our priority. We will take the opportunity to create programming and services to help our local communities who will have unmet and unaddressed legal needs.

Additionally, during the 2020-2021 academic year, CBA will continue to work with school systems interested in a pre-law program.
