ABA Annual Meeting

2016 Annual Meeting Header


The ABA Law Student Division Annual Meeting is the ABA’s biggest event of the year for law students. Students who attend the ABA Annual Meeting get the chance to socialize with students, rub elbows with attorneys, and participate in ABA governance. Registration is now open for the 2016 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

> Register today!


Registration will be open throughout the event. But, register early! Hotel rooms may sell out.

We recommend staying where most of the law student events will be – the Marriott Marquis. But you can stay at any of the ABA Annual Meeting hotels. Hotel accommodations and pricing are available at the end of your registration.

There are two ticket packages for law students:

  • Both Standard and Restricted include all non-ticketed Law Student and Young Lawyer Division events.
  • Only Standard includes access to the ABA Expo Reception and ABA President’s Reception – two fantastic opportunities to network with lawyers and other distinguished attendees.

Other tickets to specific events are available during registration. Tickets for Law Student Division events will be available closer to the event.
