In February the NALP Board approved a change to the member dues structure for the membership year commencing January 1, 2017. The new structure will make membership more appealing to smaller and medium-sized law firms, non-traditional and emerging legal employers, and additional branch offices of member law firms. As a result of the changes, most members will see a decrease in the cost of membership. Law firms of different sizes will pay different dues based on the number of attorneys in their firm. All additional law firm offices will pay a single lower dues rate. In addition, all law schools will benefit from a modest membership dues decrease.
