Our full week registration rates include daily breakfast, all CLE programming, and nightly receptions Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evening. Luncheons and guest reception tickets are also available for sale. Our PDF registration form is available here and is the best way to view our registration categories. Please contact intlawmeetings@americanbar.org if you have any questions about registering.

Refund Policy

  • Cancellations must be made in writing and received by the Section office by March 26, 2019 for a full refund of fees, less a $100.00 administrative fee. All cancellation requests should be sent to Thomas.Happell@americanbar.org
  • Cancellations must be made in writing and received by the Section office by April 2, 2019 a full refund of fees, less a $250.00 administrative fee. No refund of registration or fee for a ticketed event will be granted after that date except in the case of medical emergency or similarly extenuating circumstances approved by the Section in its sole discretion. At this point the Section has had to guarantee guest number and total fee to the caterer/event venue. Individuals are, however, afforded the opportunity to re-sell their purchased tickets/registration to other meeting attendees.
  • When a completed registration form and payment have been submitted to the Section office either by mail, fax, e-mail or through our online registration system, the registration is considered to be a firm commitment and you will be expected to pay the registration and any ticketed event fees, unless a written cancellation is received as set forth above.
  • Individuals may re-sell their purchased lunch & guest tickets to other meeting attendees unless the ticket is indicated to be “non-transferable”.
  • Any refunds issued will be processed to the credit card on file for individuals who made the payment via credit card.
