Established in 1921, SCBA is the oldest and largest professional association of legal practitioners in Sonoma County. We serve the 1,400+ lawyers who live or work in Sonoma County. Our mission is to serve the legal profession and enhance its professionalism; to serve the broader Sonoma County community; and to support and improve the system of justice.
SCBA offers its members important opportunities for professional education and development as well as other valuable benefits.
SCBA encourages attorney and student members to participate in our mentorship program. Whether you're a student, new attorney (or just new to Sonoma County), or a seasoned attorney looking to give back to the profession, everyone has a place in this program.
While intended to be an informal arrangement, there are a few guidelines all participants will need to follow. To review those guidelines and for information on joining this program, please visit our Mentorship Program page.
