Add Value to Your ABA Membership

ABA Value Pass

The “ABA Value Pass” is available to provide people with yearlong access to our distance learning programs for a one-time fee (! This is an additional revenue stream for the programs you’ve partnered with us to deliver, and thus we hope you’ll share information about it with your members via your own communication channels. Please contact Steve McGinty at 312/988-5545 to let us know what collateral you need to tell people about this offering.

ABA Free CLE Update

The series allows members to earn free continuing legal education credits. Monthly upcoming programs/topics include: “Pretrial Strategies for Success: What Every Trial Attorney Should Know” on April 8, “How to Navigate Emeritus Pro Bono Practice Rules” on April 15, and “What You Should Know: Legal Ethics Pitfalls and Hot Issues Attorneys Encounter” on May 20. Please note that to increase the ABA member value proposition, Membership is offering the recordings for free to members for three months after their live run. The series is not meant to compete with entities’ CLE portfolios; it is meant to allow members to get more value for their membership dollars. Please contact Dan Becker at with ideas for future topics and speakers. The current program lineup is always available at
