NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation) is pleased to announce that it will be an EXPO sponsor at the 2017 American Bar Association's (ABA) Annual Meeting. Nearly 80 legal organizations in the tri-state area and thousands of legal professionals from across the country and around the world will come together to attend the annual event to support the ABA. This year's conference will focus on cutting-edge legal topics that will include discussions on cyber security, "sanctuary cities", and sexual violence on campus. The meeting will be based at the New York Hilton Midtown, 1335 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY. NAM will be located on the EXPO Floor, Booth #114, from Thursday, August 10, 2017 through Saturday, August 12, 2017.

The ABA will also host several unique special events including a rally for the Legal Services Corporation, which serves more than 1.8 million low-income Americans, a networking competition called "The Trial of Two Pizzas", where attendees will weigh in on which pizza is better - Brooklyn's Table 87 or deep dish pizza from Chicago's Lou Malnati's and performances by New York cabaret and Broadway stars.

Over its 25 years in the arbitration on and mediation business, NAM has earned a reputation for its superb customer services and exceptional panel of neutrals. In addition to its ADR services, NAM supports the ABA's initiative to provide relevant and current Continuing Legal Education (CLE) to its members. NAM is an accredited New York State CLE provider and offers complimentary customized programs for attorneys at law firms, bar associations and corporate and government legal departments.

Roy Israel, President and CEO of NAM states, "New York's vibrant legal community is second to none, so what better place to have the American Bar Association's Annual Meeting than right in the heart of midtown Manhattan. I'm sure those attending will not only enjoy all the city's legal lectures and events, but will take advantage of its cultural ones as well. NAM's offices are headquartered in New York, just a few blocks from the ABA meeting, so we are excited about this year's event being held in our hometown. NAM supports the ABA and its many philanthropic initiatives and we are extremely proud to be a sponsor at this year's event."
