The New Jersey State Bar Association is excited to announce the return of an in-person Annual Meeting and Convention this May.
It is always the premier annual event of the legal community and this year will be an amazing opportunity to reconnect, recharge and reinvigorate with colleagues after two years. We look forward to welcoming judges, lawyers and law clerks from around New Jersey at our educational seminars, as well as networking events and the annual installation of officers.
Exciting news! Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas will be featured as the keynote speaker at the Opening Business Session at the NJSBA 2022 Annual Meeting and Convention. Click here to learn more about Gabby Douglas.

Programming is slated to begin Wednesday, May 18, and continue through Friday, May 20, including the State of the Judiciary addresses from New Jersey Supreme Court Chief Justice Stuart Rabner and United States District Court for the District of New Jersey Chief Judge Freda L. Wolfson that morning. The event will also feature a presentation of resolutions honoring the three most recently retired members of the state Supreme Court, Justice Jaynee LaVecchia, Justice Faustino Fernandez-Vina and Justice Walter Timpone. Our educational programming will cover a wide range of issues in practice areas and include bench-bar conferences.

A Welcome Reception will kick off the social calendar on Wednesday and we will install the officers and trustees at a ceremony Thursday where we will express our thanks to NJSBA 2021-2022 President Domenick Carmagnola and welcome NJSBA 2022-2023 President Jeralyn L. Lawrence.


The installation of officers and trustees will be held at the Music Box Theatre and every registrant is invited to attend. The event is free and the installation will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 19.
The installation marks the swearing-in of Jeralyn L. Lawrence as the 2022-2023 President of the Association. Lawrence will share her insights and goals for the year ahead. The ceremony will also be an opportunity to express thanks to NJSBA 2021-2022 President Domenick Carmagnola. In addition, the entire NJSBA executive committee and members of the Board of Trustees will be given the oath of office.
