The 2014 ABA/NLADA Equal Justice Conference, presented by the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service and the National Legal Aid & Defender Association, will be held on May 1-3, 2014 (Preconference April 30), at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower in Portland, OR. The 2014 Equal Justice Conference planning team is currently accepting session proposals for this year's conference.  

Conference programming will focus on the innovative and creative ways that the equal justice community has maximized and leveraged strategic and collaborative approaches, using a broad range of resources (including the private bar, staffed field programs, law schools, public service lawyers, members of the judiciary and others), to address inequities in our justice system.

Proposals should explore the most current and relevant legal needs of those struggling to achieve access to justice including consumer debt collection and bankruptcy, managing an organization with limited resources, immigration, health care, housing, and new strategies for providing service.

Please refer to the proposal guidelines for detailed information on creating your proposal and complete the Session Proposal Submission Form online.

If you have questions about completing the online form, please contact Erin Wellin at

Session proposals are due no later than Thursday, October 10, 2013.
