New Members


The Commercial Law Association was established in 1965 by eminent business people, accountants and lawyers to maximise the exchange of ideas and information. Today the benefits of belonging of a broad-based professional organisation are as evident now as they were when the Association was formed.

Membership of the CLA provides an opportunity for you to keep ahead of trends in law and commerce.

Members are drawn from a wide cross-section of people involved in Australian business including barristers, solicitors, accountants, financiers, insurers and others.
