Twelve Years of Conclaves on Diversity In The Legal Profession

Conclave on Diversity in the Legal Profession

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the LSBA Diversity Committee has made the difficult decision to reschedule the 13th Annual Conclave on Diversity in the Legal Profession at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel. The original date was March 27, 2020 and then the conference was postponed to August 7, 2020.

Registrants and Sponsors will be notified. Registrants will be provided with the option of transferring registration. Sponsors will be provided an opportunity to support the conference in 2021.

For the last twelve years, the LSBA has convened a Conclave on Diversity in the Legal Profession. The LSBA chose to host a “conclave” rather than a “meeting” because a conclave signifies “an assembly or gathering, especially one that has special authority, power, or influence."
