The organizing committee for the 2016 Spring Half-Year Conference is very excited to welcome you to the Windy City!
Chicago is often called the “most American of American cities.” It boasts some of the world’s best architecture, museums, restaurants, shopping, hotels, theatre, universities, professional sports teams, and other cultural attractions. Chicago is a beautiful city, with a spectacular skyline and miles of park space and beaches on the shores of Lake Michigan. The world’s leading businesses and law firms have offices in Chicago, and many of them are headquartered here. Chicago is also a very cosmopolitan city and easily accessible from many international airports. With more than 100 countries represented in Chicago’s many neighborhoods, AIJA members from all over the world will feel at home in Chicago. We will also have an opportunity to expose our AIJA visitors to the famed Midwestern friendliness and hospitality.
