WHY ATTEND?
Our three-day Convention will gather hundreds of attorneys, judges, and law students from across the nation and will feature Continuing Legal Education (CLE) panels on cutting edge topics with leading practitioners, national policy makers, and experts from across the country; networking events and workshops; the nation’s largest Hispanic Career Fair with exhibitors from prominent law firms, corporations, and government agencies; and various social activities showcasing the best of Boston. 


Our theme in 2015, “Celebrating Our Heritage, Planning our Future,” reflects Boston’s place at the forefront of American history, as well as the world-class innovation it is known for around the world.  In this historic convention, we will have an opportunity to reflect on our history as an organization and as a country, and in that same process, design new and exciting directions.
