Discover CLAWA’s Member Benefits on the tiles below.


The CLA keeps members informed about law reform and developments in the criminal law and related areas through our newsletter Loquitur and by emails.


The CLA holds a number of social functions each year to give members the opportunity for informal networking. 

Sundowners are for members only with free drinks and finger food.

In October each year the CLA holds an Annual Dinner at which a member of the profession is honoured.  Members get a discounted price for the dinner.

Find a Criminal Lawyer

For a yearly fee, in addition to the standard membership fee, members can opt to be included in the on-line member directory. The directory allows members of the public to find a criminal lawyer.
