APRL members meet semi-annually to discuss recent developments in professional responsibility and to catch up on friendships developed over the years. These semi-annual meetings are typically held in the same location as the ABA’s Annual Meeting in August and Mid-year Meeting in February of each year. During 2017, APRL will meet in Miami Beach in February and will meet in August in New York City.
In addition to the semi-annual meetings, every several years APRL holds an international professional responsibility conference. Past international conferences have been held in Paris (1996 and 2016), Shanghai (2000), Cambridge, UK (2000), Florence (2003), Amsterdam (2008) and Istanbul (2012). These conferences provide APRL members with an opportunity to meet with and explore common ground with lawyers from other nations interested in the legal ethics and professional responsibility fields.
