ABA Annual Meeting

2021 Annual Meeting

The ABA Law Student Division Annual Meeting is the ABA’s biggest event of the year for law students. This is still a great chance to chance to socialize with students, meet judges and attorneys, and participate in ABA governance.

The 2021 ABA Annual Meeting is being held from August 4-10, 2021. This will be the first-ever Hybrid Annual Meeting, with in-person events taking place in Chicago. While most events will be viewed virtually from the comfort of your home or office, governance meetings such as the Board of Governors and House of Delegates meetings will take place in person at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Any in-person governance meetings will be subject to health and safety guidelines in effect at that time. Please check the full schedule of events to determine what option is best for you.
