Connecticut Bar Journal

The first issue of the Connecticut Bar Journal was published in January 1927. Then-CBA President Carmody envisioned a periodical that would “act as a constant reminder of the existence and purposes of the Association” and offer an opportunity for members to exchange their ideas and opinions in a sophisticated and scholarly manner. “The journal…will indicate to other bar associations that our Association is wide awake,” Carmody stated.
