The Speakers Bureau is a free service of the San Mateo County Bar Association. All volunteer speakers are attorneys and members in good standing with the San Mateo County Bar Association and the State Bar of California.
Participating attorneys go to businesses, civic organizations, service clubs, professional organizations and schools to do presentations about areas of law, the justice system, and the courts and present programs that encourage questions and answers, while stimulating a lively discussion session for any group.
The attorneys are willing to speak about any matter of legal interest to any size group, and are available during the day or evenings and can customize a presentation to meet your needs and interests and welcome your ideas and requests.
Contact one of the attorneys listed below to discuss a possible speaking engagement. The SMCBA is looking for attorneys interested in supporting their community by joining the Speakers Bureau.
