General Information

The 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.

Conference Recordings

NALP conference attendees can purchase a CD-ROM with MP3 files of over 70 hours of conference programming recordings for just $99 when registering online for the conference. Take this year’s conference educational programming with you whenever and wherever you want! This is a savings of more than $700 over what it would cost you to purchase each session individually.

The $99 price is only available as a pre-conference option when registering online. The price for attendees will increase to $149 on-site and $199 after the conference. Prices for non-attendees will be $495 (NALP members) and $995 (nonmembers). The $99 price is contingent on full conference registration. Purchase of the full conference program includes audio files of every session that is recorded. Because presenters have a right to decline being recorded, no guarantee can be made that any particular session will be recorded. Historically, recordings have been available for 70% to 80% of the sessions.
