Important DatesPrograms and events are held at the ACBA office in downtown Oakland unless stated otherwise. ACBA CLEs are FREE for ACBA members! Italicized entries are sponsored by other organizations and may be subject to fees. 

UPDATE: In an abundance of caution, the Alameda County Bar Association (ACBA) plans to close our offices and cancel all in-person meetings and MCLE programs for two weeks to help stem the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and other cold/flu strains. Effective dates will be Wednesday March 11 – Friday March 20th. MCLE events will either be rescheduled or held online.  If you are registered for an MCLE during this period, you will be receiving more information shortly.
