General InformationThe NALP Annual Education Conference is the single largest, most comprehensive, and most well-respected educational program in our profession. The programming offered covers all areas of our profession from recruiting and career counseling to professional development, diversity and inclusion, and more. Specific sessions will target the current challenges members face in a changing legal environment, including managing across multiple offices, learning new pro bono requirements in certain states, resilience training to weather tough times, understanding the ins and outs of the new world of judicial clerkships, leading through change, and much more.
You will have opportunities to network with representatives of peer institutions during the Open House and Welcome Reception, regional receptions, the Diversity and Inclusion Reception, Sundae Celebration, networking meals, targeted luncheons for public service and experienced members, wellness activities like yoga and the 5K Fun Run/Walk, and more than a dozen meetings of NALP sections and groups.
