Save the Date for STLA’s 2019 Mardi Gras Conference
Don’t miss the preeminent conference for trial lawyers taking place during opening weekend of Mardi Gras, February 20-24, in New Orleans. Enjoy the fun while sharing strategies and learning from some of the best trial lawyers in the country.
For more than 30 years, the Southern Trial Lawyers Association has fostered camaraderie, learning, and networking among trial lawyers throughout thirteen southern states. We do not engage in political activity or fundraising of any kind, leaving those worthwhile activities to the state trial lawyer associations and the American Association for Justice.
The Southern Trial Lawyers Association encompasses the following member states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
We offer members two educational events a year, both overflowing with opportunities to forge professional and personal relationships that will last a lifetime. The Annual Conference during Mardi Gras in New Orleans features exceptional CLE and world class parties in one of American’s most fascinating and entertaining cities. The Fall CLE retreat is where STLA members come together to learn and share strategies in a fun and inviting location.
