2020 Equal Justice Conference May Dates Canceled; Conference POSTPONED

Wednesday, May 06, 2020 3:00 pm to Saturday, May 09, 2020 1:00 pm

The Equal Justice Conference brings together all components of the legal community to discuss equal justice issues as they relate to the delivery of legal services to the poor and low-income individuals in need of legal assistance. 

It deeply saddens us that we are unable to gather together in Atlanta, GA for the Equal Justice Conference this year, but we know this was the most prudent course of action in consideration of everyone’s well-being during these challenging times. We understand that you are fighting tirelessly to ensure equal justice for so many across the country. While we won’t see you in person, in an effort to stay connected with our community during what would have been EJC week, we would like to cordially invite you to join us for a virtual social hour receptionJoin Us This Thursday    

COVID-19 Update from the Planners of the Equal Justice Conference

The wellbeing of the Equal Justice Conference attendees and speakers is our highest priority. In light of the March 15, 2020 guidance from the Centers for Disease Control to cancel large group meetings scheduled for the next eight weeks, the designation of the COVID-19 disease as a pandemic by the World Health Organization, the number of organizations imposing travel bans on their employees, and, most importantly, the health of our registrants, presenters, and staff, the ABA and NLADA have decided that the most prudent course of action is that we do not hold the Equal Justice Conference May 6-9. We currently are exploring the feasibility of rescheduling the conference to dates later this year, but wanted to communicate this update to you now. We will continue to provide updates as we have them. Please monitor your inboxes or visit the Equal Justice Conference website for future communications about the conference.

Information for registrants

Because we are exploring rescheduling the conference, we encourage those of you who can do so to hold off on requesting a refund in the event that we are able to reschedule. We will apply your registration to the rescheduled event. We know that not everyone is in the same position and will continue to provide full refunds to those who request one. To request a refund, please email [email protected]. Some of you who have cancelled over the past few weeks have offered to waive your refund. We thank you for your generosity. If you must cancel at this time and would like to waive a portion or all of your refund, please let us know in your email.

While we are saddened that we will not convene in May, we are hopeful that we will see you soon, and we remain grateful to be working with all of you to advance equal justice. We hope to have another update for you in the coming weeks.
