CDAA Trainings and Events


The California District Attorneys Association hosts many live training events and webinars each year on a variety of prosecution-related topics. Our specialized MCLE-accredited seminars, many financed in part by state and federal grant funds, offer general and specialized California State Bar MCLE-accredited seminars to prosecutors and law enforcement personnel.

CDAA seminars provide intensive training to thousands of prosecutors, peace officers, and allied professionals each year. We owe the success of these programs to the hundreds of volunteers who share their time, expertise, and talent as technical advisors and instructors.
