The ATJ Conference and Bar Leaders Conference share a registration desk. When you arrive at the Yakima Convention Center for the first time, please come to the registration desk in the lobby. There, you will be greeted by staff or volunteers, and you’ll pick up your name tag, program, registration packet, conference tee shirt, and meal tickets. This is also the place for attorneys to sign in for CLE credits.Registration desk hours: Friday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Saturday, 7 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Sunday, 8 a.m. – 10 a.m

So, what is this “Justice Joint” anyway? The Justice Joint is a magnificent mini-expo room, where conference attendees gather for short breaks on Saturday. The room includes displays from Alliance organizations, an internet café, and coffee/water. The Saturday afternoon break at 3 p.m. is a longer break that usually has snack food available. Bring a brief case or tote bag to collect the materials you pick up in the Justice Joint!
Walk-in registrations are welcome for both the Access to Justice Conference and the Bar Leaders Conference. To avoid long lines at the registration desk, think about registering on Friday before 5 p.m. or first thing Saturday morning.
Conference attendees should dress comfortably. Most attendees tend to dress casually for this conference for the workshops on Saturday and Sunday. Yakima is typically sunny and hot during this time of year. However, the convention center is air-conditioned, and it is invariably too warm for some and too cool for others. We strongly recommend that you bring appropriate layers so that you are comfortable in your workshops and meetings.
Conference materials are posted online. Hard copies are not provided at the conference, so please plan ahead by reviewing and printing or downloading materials of interest to you.

ATJ and BLC players in the Palm Springs of Washington visit the Justice Joint when shoulders begin to slump and the tell-tale signs of a meltdown appear. You won’t need to catch an aerial tramway though to check email, laugh at clips from conferences past, enjoy a comforting cup of coffee, chat, snack and relax among Alliance displays and resources.
