2019 USMBA Annual Conference




Join us for the 25th USMBA Annual Conference

The U.S.-Mexico Bar Association will be hosting our annual conference in Dallas, TX, from October 23 to October 25, 2019.

It´s the 25th anniversary of the USMBA! Our conference builds on the success of last year´s conference in Mexico City.

Electorates in both the United States and Mexico have elected presidents who ran on anti-elite messages and have disrupted the political class of both countries. One is from the left of the political spectrum and the other from the right. They both have begun leaving their mark on legislation and the practice of law. Come join us to discuss how these events have impacted the practice of law in North America. We will feature expert panels with top lawyers, the judiciary, and academics from both Mexico and the U.S. Additionally, our program will include special sessions for you to the network with colleagues at round tables.
