Public Policy & Advocacy

Through our public policy and advocacy work, the CBA promotes lawyers’ interests and protects the legal profession’s core values from regulatory and legislative encroachment. By bringing lawyers’ perspective to the public debate, we strive to improve the law and the administration of justice, and to promote equality and access to justice.

CBA Alberta encourages members to participate in our public policy and advocacy work. Members can work with Sections and Committee to propose a statement or submission on matters that are important to them, or are encouraged to reach out to the Agenda for Justice & Advocacy or Lawyer Advocacy committees.

More information about statements and submissions are available in the Public Statements & Submissions Policy.



The Canadian Bar Association (CBA) is your collective voice for law reform and government policy.

On the frontlines of our justice system, we work on your behalf to protect the core values of the legal profession from regulatory and legislative encroachment. We also safeguard the public interest by lobbying on pertinent issues and addressing government initiatives.

You can personally shape the development of laws in your area of practice by joining the CBA.
