NEW Opportunity: Be a Sponsored Scholarship Recipient!

Earn a $150 refund after conference! How? Register and attend ALA Master Class: Leadership for Legal Professionals and commit to four prescheduled on-site meetings with exhibitors*. Then, meet with your assigned business partners on-site and turn in your appointment card to have it validated before the final session. Submit your completed, validated appointment card and ALA will refund $150 to you within three weeks after conference. To participate, indicate yes to the question “Interested in being a sponsored scholarship recipient?” when you register. Total number of available Sponsored Scholarships are limited; first-come, first-served based on date and time registration is received.

*Each appointment must be at least five minutes and will be held during coffee and/or meal breaks. One month before the conference, you will be sent a list of the sponsoring exhibitors and will have an opportunity to rank your preferences. ALA will do our best to connect you with your first choices, however, it will depend on the final number of sponsors and recipients. Appointments will be scheduled and confirmed by ALA staff one week prior to the start of the conference.


To help reduce food waste and plan appropriate room sets, please indicate if you will not be attending any included meal or special event by removing it from your registration itinerary.
