Tiffany Hendricks attends 89th Convention of the National Bar Association

The 89th Annual Convention of the National Bar Association (NBA) was held July 25-August 1, 2014 in Atlanta, GA.   This year’s theme was “Standing Our Ground for Justice.”     Dozens of seminars were conducted including topics ranging from energy and environmental law to “IP Considerations in Emerging Media and Promotions.”   The event was well attended and its programming was relevant to the current demands of the legal profession.   Attorney Benjamin Crump of Florida, whose law firm gained national attention for their representation of the family of Trayvon Martin, was voted President-Elect of the organization.   The success of this year’s convention continues the NBA tradition of leadership and excellence in the law.  Kudos to the NBA for a job well done!
