Welcome to our August Marin Lawyer. Many of us might be found in exotic locales this time of year; I am often in Marfa, Texas, which no doubt is exotic to many of you (I guess the mountains of the Chihuahuan Desert could count as exotic.) But thanks to the wonders of the internet and email, the Marin Lawyer is still available to all of us.

A broad consensus has developed among economists and politicians that providing access to high-quality early childhood learning programs is the most effective way to level the playing field for children from all social backgrounds. MC3 serves as the focal point between preschools and daycare providers, parents, and the State and County.


Members who make time to meet with their colleagues at MCBA events gain value from local connections and stay current with updates in the courts. Marin Superior Court Judges often comment that the most skilled lawyers are usually active MCBA members.


MCBA offers Sections in 12 legal practice areas. Each Section provides continuing legal education (CLE) and offers networking opportunities tailored to its members.


MCBA provides resource listings for community services including low cost legal services, attorney referral services, partnerships with community legal organizations, and mediation services.
