American Bar Association To Hold Annual Meeting At MTCC

From August 4-9, the American Bar Association (ABA) will hold its 134th annual meeting at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC). The ABA annual meeting has an estimated attendance of 8,000 affiliated legal professionals and more than 100 exhibitors.

The ABA provides law school accreditation, continuing legal education, information about the law, programmes to assist lawyers and judges in their work, and initiatives to improve the legal system for the public.

"Our location in the beautiful and vibrant city of Toronto honours the ABA's longstanding special ties to the Canadian Bar Association. This meeting offers a unique opportunity to discuss and even further strengthen the relationship between the American and Canadian legal professions, and to address issues that matter deeply to us both," said Stephen N. Zack, ABA President 2010-2011.

The ABA's annual meeting along with all the programmes that are being offered will help attendees improve their professional skills, expertise and provide current developments and standards for the legal profession. High-profile speakers and debates on critical law and public policy issues are also on the cards. The meeting will also include the world's largest legal expo offering an arrangement of goods and services relating to the practice of law.

"The MTCC and Toronto is the ideal location for this significant gathering. The ability to network in one accessible location with leading legal professionals from around the world can only promote new ideas and strengthen individual growth within the legal industry," said Barry Smith, President and CEO of the MTCC. "Our local economy will benefit from over $21 million in delegate spending."
