Media Credentials

​Complimentary press registration is available to the events with a press contact listed on the ABA Conferences/Schools Events Calendar. Media credentials are required when registering for any event. To obtain media credentials, you will need identification certifying that you are a working member of the news media on assignment to cover the meeting. Business cards from established news organizations are sufficient to establish eligibility.

​To request a press pass for any ABA conference, please email the Press Contact listed for the event. Press passes are limited, and are granted only to working journalists who intend to cover the event.

​Reporters must represent a commercial publication that is funded by subscriptions or paid advertising.

​Attendees from publications must represent the editorial staff. Public relations, advertising, marketing or sales representatives will not be given a complimentary registration but are welcome to purchase one.

​Freelance writers may be asked to produce a letter of assignment or evidence of previous or current assignments from a media outlet as described above.

​Any individual with a media badge who markets, sells or represents a company for the purpose of selling or promoting a product/service to or obtaining advertising/subscriptions from any registrant or exhibitor, or who violates any other stipulation for credentialing, will immediately forfeit media credentials for this and subsequent meetings.

​Questions about press registration? Please contact Gabrielle James-Johnson for more information.
