Conference Curriculum/Topics
When developing the conference curriculum, our goal is to provide a balanced program that meets the variety of skill levels and interests of the conference audience, presented by speakers of the highest quality who represent the diversity of the Federal Bar Association membership. Presentation proposals must have broad appeal across practice areas and should incorporate a topic or agenda based on the practice areas listed below.

Presentation Guidelines
For a presentation to be considered, the content and materials must be educational in nature – that is, sales presentations, business promotion, showcase of a service or product will not be accepted. In addition, the material should be original and all sources must be referenced. For multiple speakers, each speaker must agree to the submission guidelines. Incomplete presentation submissions will not be considered. Please note that if a proposal is being submitted on behalf of a Section or Division, it must be submitted by the Section/Division Chair (or his/her designee)
