Convergence: Collaborating for a Grand Tomorrow

The 26th Annual NAPABA Convention will be held in Phoenix/Scottsdale, AZ from November 6-9, 2014. We expect to attract over 1,500 APA attorneys, including general counsel of Fortune 1000 companies, federal and state judges, and law professors from across the country. The Convention, themed “Convergence: Collaborating for a Grand Tomorrow,” will feature programing that celebrates the diversity and unity of NAPABA.

NAPABA will again coordinate with the National Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (NAPALSA) to host the student conference in order to help the next generation of APA lawyers develop the skills and relationships necessary to succeed and thrive in this challenging profession.

For the fifth year in a row, the National Asian Pacific American Pre-Law Conference will be hosted at the Convention for prospective law students.

NAPABA Convention Credo

To highlight the values and goals of the organization, NAPABA has adopted a Convention Credo that will be one of the guiding principles for attendees:

"I undertake the responsibility of promoting a professional environment at the NAPABA Convention to encourage and maintain the important values of friendship, civility, community, respect towards all, and ethical conduct. If I behave in a way that is inconsistent with these values, I understand that NAPABA may take appropriate action either during or after the Convention. NAPABA's mission is to promote justice, equity and opportunity for Asian Pacific Americans and to foster professional development, legal scholarship, advocacy and community involvement. As a Convention attendee, I am a proud ambassador of the NAPABA legal community and will conduct myself in a manner that advances NAPABA's goals."
