Why Attend?

The ABA/NLADA Equal Justice Conference was first held in 1999, making this the 25th annual gathering. Learn more about the origins of the conference in this video. Last year, the conference sold out with more than 900 members of the civil legal aid community gathered to learn from a number of topical workshops covering issues of substantive law, resource development, racial justice and much more. You do not want to miss your chance to take part in this massive learning opportunity.
