Welcome to the Charles Houston Bar Association Website!
We are an affiliate of the National Bar Association representing the interests of African American lawyers, judges and law students throughout Northern California. Founded in 1955, CHBA is committed to working within the African American community to facilitate access to the justice system and to promote equal protection under the law.
The Charles Houston Bar Association, in partnership with the California Bar Foundation, is pleased to introduce our Bar Scholarship. Valued at $5,000, this scholarship provides a free Barbri bar prep course and a $1,000 living stipend. The deadline for the scholarship application is Tuesday February 16, 5pm. Any African-American 3L, who plans to sit for the July 2016 California bar exam, and plans to practice public interest law in California, is eligible. Although the program is targeted at African-Americans, all students are eligible to apply.
Deadline: Tuesday, February 16, 2016, 5pm
