MBA Practice Groups

For many section members, the primary way to become actively involved in the section is to join a practice group. The practice groups are as varied as the field of law, therefore, if your practice includes many facets of a specific section, you may join one or all practice groups in that section.

Practice groups can carry out much of the work of the sections, from organizing education programs to compiling articles for Section Review, to reviewing legislation. Practice groups play an important role in the section as a whole, and chairing a practice group is a great opportunity to make an impact on the profession.

For more information on individual practice groups or to join a practice group, contact MBA Sections Administrator Jean Stevens via e-mail.

NOTE: Practice group members must be members of the MBA and members of the sponsoring section.
