Membership of CCASA is, upon approval by the membership committee, open to Corporate Counsel, Company Secretaries, Compliance Officers, Risk Managers, Paralegals (with the necessary qualification as proof), Auditors, Law Firms, practising Advocates, Legal Consultants and Employment Agencies specialising in the legal sector.

A person who qualifies for membership may join as an ordinary member or as a representative of his/her employer organization (in which case that organization joins as a corporate member and has as many corporate counsel representatives as it requires). A person who does not qualify for ordinary membership may apply to join CCASA as an associate member (again as an individual or as a representative of his/her employer organization).
