D.C. Bar 2020 Conference: 100 Years of the 19th Amendment
“Now We Can Begin” - Crystal Eastman, Suffragist, 1920
On June 24 – 26, 2020, the D.C. Bar returns to its tradition of hosting a multi-day conference bringing together its local, national, and international members with leaders of our profession to focus on important developments in the law. This year we mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment by which American women won the right to vote.
This momentous event includes CLE-approved sessions, networking opportunities, local area tours and features impressive keynote speakers including renowned presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Doris Kearns Goodwin, and former United States Attorney General and current Covington partner, Eric H. Holder Jr.
Join legal experts from around the globe as we examine the 19th Amendment’s historic milestone and what the next 100 years may bring for voting rights. What better place to learn about these important legal issues than in the place where much of this history was—and will continue to be—made, the nation’s capital!
