The NBA is the oldest and largest national network of predominately African-American attorneys and judges.  The NBA represents the interests of approximately 66,000 lawyers, judges, law professors, and law students. Memphis has not hosted the Convention since 1998, and we anticipate that it will bring more than 1,500 minority lawyers, judges, law professors, and law students to our great city, providing an unparalleled opportunity to showcase our city, our Chapter, and the many positive changes that have come here!
