Convergence: the world-class conference for litigators | 11-12 July | Singapore


  • At a time of both significant challenge and opportunity, Australia’s legal profession embraces its future with Asia. ‘Convergence’ is the Australian Bar Association’s (ABA) 2019 biennial international conference.
  • The carefully curated conference program will explore a range of commercial law and litigation topics and include sessions delivered by inspiring senior members of the legal profession and business sector along with the latest developments in practice development.
  • Delegates will engage in ground-breaking discussion and return to practice with quantifiable skills.


The ABA invites members of the Australian and Asia Pacific legal professions, government, academia and media to attend this two-day commercial law conference. This is an exciting opportunity for like-minded professionals to engage with international colleagues – forging meaningful connections. In addition to an excellent and inspiring educational program, there will be an outstanding social, accompanying partner, and family program catering to those visiting Singapore specifically for the conference and for those passing through on the way to or from another destination.
