The California Political Attorneys Association (CPAA) is a nonpartisan California nonprofit organization that:
The California Political Attorneys Association was formed in 1988 by political lawyers who, sharing concerns when faced with the conflicting simultaneous passage of California Propositions 68 and 73 (initiatives affecting campaign law), decided to make a group presentation to the Fair Political Practices Commission. Since those initial meetings and appearances before the FPPC, CPAA has grown in membership throughout the state.
CPAA voting members are California lawyers whose practices involve the California Political Reform Act of 1974, the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, other California and Federal election and campaign laws, including initiative/referendum laws, and campaign and election laws of other jurisdictions. A non-voting membership is available to public attorneys and law students.
