Our Work

CBABC advocates for issues important to our members. Members develop and decide CBABC policy and law reform positions.

We engage the BC legislature through written submissions, committee appearances and informal meetings. Through regular consultation with the provincial government, the Law Society of British Columbia, the courts and other stakeholders, CBABC leads initiatives on behalf of the legal profession and in partnership with our justice system partners.
