Attorney General Eric Holder delivered the keynote address at the opening Gala Dinner during the ACS 10th Anniversary National Convention. Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-Md.-4th), and Harold Hongju Koh, Legal Adviser of the Department of State, were also featured speakers at this year's convention.
The ACS National Convention brought together more than a thousand of the nation's top lawyers, judges, law students, policymakers, scholars and activists to learn, debate and strategize. The 2011 National Convention provided participants with the opportunity to engage with exciting speakers, participate in rigorous debate and discussion of critical legal and public policy issues, visit with their members of Congress, network with lawyers and companies from around the country, and contribute to the development of a progressive vision of the Constitution, the law and public policy.
In addition to the opening gala dinner, featuring Attorney General Eric Holder, the Convention included engaging panel discussions and plenary sessions offering continuing legal education credit. The Convention formally concluded with a Saturday luncheon. Later that day, there will be an ACS Student Chapter Retreat, followed by intimate mentor dinners with prominent Washington lawyers.
