CMCP offers attorneys of color opportunities to demonstrate their skills, expand their professional and personal networks, receive continuing legal education, and establish lasting business relationships.
Signature Events and Programs (10-12 per year)
By joining CMCP, you'll have access to an array of opportunities that are designed to help you grow and thrive in your professional life. From networking events to continuing legal education, our accredited provider status ensures that you receive the highest quality of training. As a member, you'll also have access to exclusive events tailored to your specific needs as an in-house or outside counsel.
Corporate Connections is a signature program by CMCP that facilitates "speed networking" interviews between in-house attorneys and outside counsel to build and strengthen business relationships.
CMCP assists in-house legal departments by registering outside counsel, matching interviews by practice areas, and revising schedules to avoid conflicts, resulting in over 400 interviews per program.
RECRUIT AND RETAIN
The CMCP Job Bank features open attorney positions in corporate legal departments and law firms. Companies and law firms can recruit talented attorneys from diverse backgrounds and receive valuable feedback on retention from CMCP. The Job Bank is accessible and free to everyone who wishes to search for open positions or visit to explore current openings across the country (not just California.)
CMCP member attorneys can broaden their connections and demonstrate their skills by volunteering for a subcommittee.
Subcommittees contribute to the planning of the CMCP Annual Business Conference or Women of Color Conference, or, ad hoc committees may be established periodically to tackle particular initiatives.
