We are two months from the inaugural conference of the Catholic Bar Association on October 27-30, 2016! Attached is the new CBA Conference pamphlet showing our amazing line up of speakers for our first year. Everything is in place, sponsors are lining up and now we need YOU to register and help us promote the event! The CBA Conference pamphlet includes the current list of confirmed speakers, sponsors and schedule. Due to the positive feedback from law students, we added a law student social on Saturday at 4:30 pm before the dinner with keynote speaker Hadley Arkes.
