MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 19, 2022 / — The National Bar Association’s 97th Annual Convention will hold its Diversity In Tech Summit on July 27 at the Renasant Convention Center in Memphis, TN.

NBA President Carlos Moore, along with Planning Committee Chair/Moderator James Carter and Intellectual Property Law Section Chair/Co-Moderator Bert Jennings, teamed up to connect legal practitioners with technology industry leaders. Silicon Valley tech founders, investors, senior executives and attorneys from across the country will gather to discuss a variety of topics surrounding the importance of diversity in the tech world. Legal professionals and business owners will have the opportunity to attend four groundbreaking sessions featuring high-level representatives from Amazon, Google, Microsoft, LexisNexis, Apple, Meta, Limited Ventures and B2T Technologies.

“I am truly honored to host such a prestigious summit with two of the biggest game changers in the legal profession. Our goal is to ensure that all attendees gain invaluable knowledge by attending these groundbreaking sessions,” said attorney Carter.

Carter is an elite member of the Multimillion Dollar Advocates Forum, the National Trial Lawyers Top 100, and the Litigation Counsel of America. He is an Adjunct Professor of Civil Litigation at Howard University Law School and serves on the Howard University Law School Board of Visitors. Carter’s contributions to the legal world have been praised by his peers, clients, and fellow professionals, and he is now immersing himself in change when it comes to the digital divide in the legal community — especially communities of color.

“Organizing meaningful dialogues around diversity in technology is indeed essential and can help inspire professionals from all walks of life to get out there and bring about change in the multiple fields of technology,” said the president of the NBA, Carlos Moore.

Judge Moore was indeed president of the National Bar Association, and this event is one of many culminating events under his leadership. He is actively involved in several associations, including the American Bar Association, American Association for Justice, Mississippi Bar, Magnolia Bar Association, Mississippi Association for Justice, and Grenada County Bar Association. His hard work and dedication to the practice of law is reflected in the various awards he has received over the years.

The National Bar Association is the oldest and largest national network of predominantly African-American lawyers and judges. It represents the interests of approximately 65,000 lawyers, judges, law professors and law students. The NBA is organized around 23 substantive law sections, 9 divisions, 12 regions and 80 affiliated chapters in the United States and around the world.

This year’s convention marks the first full in-person convention since pre-COVID, and every session presented is guaranteed to raise eyebrows for all attendees.
