A Message from CBA Executive Director Terrence M. Murphy:

In the wake of the World Health Organization's March 11 announcement that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a global pandemic, The Chicago Bar Association is taking the following precautionary action consistent with the CDC’s recommendations to protect the well-being of our valued members and of our outstanding staff:

1. Effective March 16, committee meetings and continuing legal education seminars will only be offered online. Speakers will be invited to tape their presentations at the Association’s Headquarters or remotely in their office, after which the taped presentation will be available online to CBA members. All committee and CLE seminar presentations at the Association will be audience free and available only at the CBA’s website (click here for current schedule). The online only programming change will remain in place until such time as this health emergency is resolved. 

2. During this time, we will notify members on a weekly basis of the schedule for online committee and CLE programming. Online registration is convenient and, as a reminder, the CBA automatically tracks MCLE credit for members who attend the CBA’s many qualified programs. Thus, members will be able to obtain all of their Illinois MCLE credit requirements. 

3. In addition, committee leaders may decide to schedule conference calls with their committees.

4. Social events planned at the Association are being rescheduled so please check the CBA’s website for updated information about these events. 

Thank you and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
