CMA Legal helps member physicians comply with laws and regulations that impact the practice of medicine by providing legal information and resources, as well as educational seminars and presentations. The Center for Legal Affairs also serves as CMA’s in-house corporate counsel, providing legal advice to CMA’s Board of Trustees, Executive Committee, House of Delegates and executive management. Law clerks will work with CMA legal counsel in performing these important functions and help to carry out CMA’s mission to promote the science and art of medicine, the care and well-being of patients, the protection of the public health and the betterment of the medical profession.

CMA offers opportunities to undergraduate, graduate, law, and medical students seeking to increase their involvement and education in state health policy and in the legislative activities of organized medicine.
