2020 Spring Conference Schedule

Dear Colleague:

In light of the recommendation from the CDC to cancel all events with more than 50 people to curb the spread of COVID-19, the declaration of a public health emergency in Tennessee, the WHO’s classification of the coronavirus as a pandemic, prohibitions on travel by law firms, corporations, and governmental agencies, and, most importantly, concern for your welfare and safety, the decision was made to cancel the upcoming TIPS Section Conference and YLD Spring Conference.  The program was scheduled to be held April 29- May 2, 2020 at the JW Marriott in Nashville, Tennessee.  

Registration Fees and Ticketed Events

Cancellations for the conference will automatically be processed, and refunds will be credited to you within the next two weeks using your original form of payment. For questions, please contact Juel Jones at Juel.Jones@americanbar.org or  312.988.5597. 


  • Guests must cancel/change their own hotel reservations.
  • Passengers must cancel/change their own airline tickets.  

If you were expecting to attend Section/Division business meetings, such as Council, expect a follow up directly from Section/Division leadership.

Thank you for your continued support of the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section and the Young Lawyers Division.

Wishing you good health.

Kind regards,

Thea M. Capone, TIPS Chair
J. Logan Murphy, YLD Chair
