    The ABA Senior Lawyers Division has been a proud sponsor of the U.S. Supreme Court Trip for more than 20 years.

    We know you may have questions about the status of our Conference in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The ABA and Senior Lawyers Division take the health and safety of members and staff seriously. While the decision to attend a meeting is based on several factors personal to you, as of now we intend to proceed with the Supreme Court Trip as scheduled. The ABA and Senior Lawyers Division are monitoring developments and guidance from a variety of sources, including the Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization, and U.S. state and local health authorities. We will continue to monitor the situation and take any necessary precautions in accordance with updates and regulations released by State and Federal health authorities. Should a change in the situation necessitate the need to cancel the Supreme Court Trip, information will be posted at https://www.americanbar.org/news/abanews/aba-news-archives/2020/03/impact-of-coronavirus--covid-19--on-upcoming-aba-meetings-/ and sent to you at your email address in our records . Your meeting registration fees will be refunded as well.

    Lawyers who are not members of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar may apply. You must have an active state license for at least three consecutive years, a certificate of good standing, and statements from two sponsors. ABA membership is not required.
