Lawyers keep conference in Phoenix despite new law

The American Bar Association says it will still hold a long-planned conference in Phoenix but restructure it to focus much of it on Arizona’s controversial law targeting illegal immigration.

The national lawyers group opposes the law and says speakers at the “Equal Justice Conference” being held Thursday through Saturday will explore questions raised by the law and the issue of immigration reform.

Other issues to be discussed during the conference include providing legal aid during a recession and foreclosure prevention.

ABA President Carolyn Lamm delivers a keynote address on Friday.
