The state’s legal community will come together at the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Annual Meeting and Convention for educational seminars, speeches and networking events. Roughly 2,500 judges, lawyers, law clerks and law students are expected to attend the three-day event held in Atlantic City.
 
The event features prominent legal experts, programs on hot issues such as the pay-to-play issues, a Supreme Court update, the latest developments from Trenton, and more. It will include a suite of programs focusing on the threats to judicial independence. They will examine how those threats affect justice around the globe and here at home.
 
The event runs from May 15 to 17 at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City.
