Join us June 19-21 for the largest gathering of legal professionals in Iowa, the 2017 Iowa State Bar Association Annual Meeting. In 2016, more than 1,000 legal professionals from throughout the country descended upon downtown Des Moines, making it one of the largest ISBA Annual Meetings to date! In 2017, we’re looking to build upon the success of past meetings.

The meeting not only provides compelling CLE programming with timely topics and charismatic speakers, but also several exciting social events.
  • Establish a new valuable connection at the Joint Presidents Reception
  • Mix and mingle with fellow attorneys and judges at the YLD-sponsored gathering
  • Discuss issues of importance with judges and ISBA leadership at the Luncheon Honoring the Iowa Supreme Court
  • Celebrate the accomplishments of fellow members at the Awards Gala
  • Congratulate the 50-year class of 2017 on their achievement at the 50-Year Member Luncheon

Make no mistake – The Iowa State Bar Association’s Annual Meeting is where you’ll want to be June 19-21. We’re working hard to make it the best annual meeting yet!

17 state hours which includes 4 ethics and 10 federal hours (credit received depends on tracks attended)

Prices below reflect the early-bird registration fees. Registering after June 12 will result in a $50 late fee being added on to the registration fee amounts below. Judges, law clerks, and judicial branch staff attorneys will receive registration information from the Iowa Judicial Branch.

In an effort to keep costs down, and to be as "green" as possible, the 2017 ISBA Annual Meeting will be paperless. The ISBA will provide digital copies of the conference materials to all conference attendees, by providing a URL hyperlink to download the written outlines prior to the conference. It is strongly suggested that attendees download the materials in advance of the event.
