Encino Lawyers

Welcome to the Encino Lawyers Association

Encino’s premier “mini-bar” and MCLE provider, the Encino Lawyers Association is dedicated to legal excellence, education and camaraderie at a local level.

We meet the second Wednesday of each month at the Sherman Oaks Galleria Community Room.

Meetings start at 6 p.m. for a social hour, with a 7 p.m. one hour MCLE presentation, except for two times a year (spring and winter) when we just get together for a party.  We will not have a meeting in August due to summer vacation schedules.

This is a group for lawyers with broad interests looking to form deeper relationships with colleagues than is possible in a larger bar setting.

Think of a lawyer supper club. Or even better yet, come join us and get in on the fun!

Programs are typically $40 for members and $50 for non-members, with dinner included.  Annual membership fee is $90

Hope to see you soon!
