Please join the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Section at our Eleventh Annual Fall Institute, Thursday and Friday, November 1-2, 2018 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C. 

Due to the generosity of our sponsors, we are able to offer the CLE portions of our programming free of charge.  We hope you will also join us at our prestigious Criminal Justice Section Awards Luncheon/Address, which occurs on Friday, November 2 at 12:30pm.  The Address will be given by Hilarie Bass, immediate past President of the American Bar Association.  Ms. Bass will discuss her work creating a new organization to address issues critical to women and minorities.  These important remarks are incredibly timely given the recent launch by the Criminal Justice Section of the new Women in Criminal Justice Task Force. 

All CLE programming, including the White Collar Town Hall, is complimentary and participants may register on-site.  Those wishing to attend the Awards Luncheon /Address should register online.  The cost of the luncheon is $50.  For those registering online, please note that website issues have resulted in improper pricing information being listed.  The correct price should populate when you move to the checkout.  If you have any difficulty registering online, please contact Regina.Ashmon@americanbar.org
