Bill is excited to be attending the 2016 IBA Annual Conference being held in Washington, DC, home to the Federal Government of the USA.
The International Bar Association (IBA) Annual Conference is the premier conference for legal professionals worldwide to meet, share knowledge, network, build contacts and develop business. It also serves to advance the development of law and its role in business and society and to learn from the experience of others. The IBA’s first Annual Conference was held in 1947 and it has grown to become the world’s largest and most prestigious international gathering of lawyers, each year attracting around 6,000 individuals representing over 2,700 law firms and corporations.
The IBA Annual Conference is open to both members and non-members of the IBA, with lawyers from over 130 jurisdictions and all parts of the legal profession, including lawyers in private practice, in-house counsel, human rights advocates, judges, bar leaders, regulators and government representatives. This unique mix of viewpoints provides a rich environment for discussion, debate and learning as well as the opportunity to develop lasting business relationships and lifelong friendships.
Barton Legal is also proud to be one of the sponsors of the event.
