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.

Friday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Saturday, 7 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Sunday, 8 a.m. – 10 a.m

FAQ: Justice Joint

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!

Justice Joint

Rediscover Your Passion!
Saturday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

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.
