ABA/NLADA Equal Justice Conference

Conference Information: A Message from the EJC Planners

The 2020 ABA/NLADA Equal Justice Conference will take place in Atlanta, GA. We look forward to another conference filled with vibrant discussion of innovative ideas around access to justice, from delivery models to management issues to the use of technology.

The EJC planners gave a great deal of thought and consideration to the appropriateness of meeting in Atlanta in light of the recent legislation affecting womens’ reproductive rights. We spoke with our colleagues and friends at organizations in Atlanta and throughout the state of Georgia, as well as many of you who reached out to us to share your views. We carefully weighed the many pros and cons before deciding to remain in Atlanta, where we can support our colleagues on the ground and highlight the good work being done in Georgia to advance access to justice. We will also offer attendees with a list of local businesses owned by women, minorities, and veterans so that you may support communities important to us all.

While we recognize that some in our community may not be able to join us, we encourage those who are able to join us for this unique opportunity to share ideas and vision within the access to justice communities. The conference will also help to vastly improve your skills and provide you the latest information in providing clients fair and adequate legal services. There is no better time, and no better value, for learning and sharing about how to make equal justice a reality for everyone.

The ABA/NLADA Equal Justice Conference is an annual gathering of legal services and pro bono advocates to share and learn about developments and innovations in providing legal services to low-income persons. It is co-sponsored by the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service and the National Legal Aid and Defender Association.
