CCBA Community Service Activities

Members of the Clark County Bar Association (CCBA) are invited to provide outreach services to the community at large in southern Nevada.  See below for a list of upcoming community service activities organized by the CCBA Community Service Committee:

Law Day Activities

CCBA’s Community Service Committee is planning two activities for members’ participation in honor of Law Day to be held on Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2, 2020. This year’s Law Day centers on the centennial celebration and commemoration of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which granted women the right to vote.  The theme for this year’s Law Day adopted by the American Bar Association is “Your Vote, Your Voice, Our Democracy:  The 19th Amendment at 100.” For more information about CCBA’s activities this year, see below:
