Section Activities

Bar Journal

Section members provide articles for the November issue of the CMBA Bar Journal.

CLE Programs

We sponsor our annual half-day Litigation Institute in May or June, as well as the NITA Trial Advocacy Institute.  We had a full house at the 2016 Institute, held on June 9.  Many thanks to our presenters and speakers for participating.


Our meetings, with one hour of CLE credit, are held periodically throughout the year.

We value your input - please send topic and speaker suggestions to our staff liaisons.

Pro Bono and Community Service

Our Section provides annual scholarships to minority 2-L law students from both Case Western and C|M Law. 

We also support the CMBA's Mock Trial program by providing judges and advisers for local high school teams.
