Members Area

CTLA has a long history of sharing expertise within our community. It's one of the greatest benefits of your membership.

The following offerings and resources are provided exclusively to current members.

TrialSmith List Servers

Ask practice questions, share facts and knowledge, and get answers fast on the CTLA list servers. Simply email your inquiry to one address to reach hundreds of CTLA members. Join one or all of our seven listserves – they're free to CTLA Members!

Discussion Boards

Similar to our list servers, our discussion boards are organized into topics. No emails to clutter your inbox – you can choose whether to be notified of new activity daily. Share depositions, verdicts and settlements, pleadings, briefs and more. You can also seek staff, office space and other services from fellow members in our new Member Marketplace.


Learn about the various committees dedicated to advancing CTLA's mission. Browse member lists, contact chairs and view upcoming meetings. You can also join certain committees online.

Eviction Defense Pro Bono Initiative

Many low-income individuals and families are just one crisis away from facing eviction from their homes. CTLA and four state Legal Aid Programs developed this initiative as a response to reach and represent more families faced with eviction.

Case Strategy Requests

CTLA will assemble a panel of experienced trial attorneys to provide an in-depth, one-hour, confidential review of your pending case at your convenience. You may purchase this service, submit case information and supporting documents, all online.

Mentor Program

We remember what it's like when you're just starting out. Over eighty of CTLA's most accomplished attorneys from throughout the state have generously volunteered their time to participate in this program.
