ISBA ANNUAL MEETING GOES VIRTUAL IN 2020

Due to the situation surrounding COVID-19 and with the health and safety of ISBA members, guests, staff and our communities being our top priority, this year's ISBA Annual Meeting is changing into an all-virtual CLE experience for attorneys.

Each day, from May 18-22, live CLE presentations focusing on different practice areas will take place via a live webinar format. Attend one or multiple days of the meeting and hear from some of Iowa's most distinguished legal minds – all while earning CLE credit from the comfort of your own home or office.
