Specific yet diverse trainings from NLADA will inform, inspire, and empower you to carry the torch of equal justice in your community and nationwide. We offer opportunities for professional and leadership development, for developing substantive legal practice, and for skills building. NLADA sets the standard for up-to-date innovative, interactive, faculty-intensive training programs and conferences.
Civil Training Opportunities
Understanding and meeting the training needs of equal justice advocates and staff at every level of the legal aid system is an NLADA priority. NLADA offers at least two national training conferences each year to the civil legal aid community, and we support and promote state-based and regional training opportunities.
Defender Training Opportunities
Training is a key component of NLADA's mission to seek justice for all by providing high-quality, cost-efficient legal representation to low-income persons accused of crimes. An experienced and dynamic faculty, carefully selected for each program because of their professional expertise, conducts all of NLADA's trainings. Conferences offer innovations in technology and management techniques and strategies plus opportunities to sharpen trial, appellate, and training skills.
NLADA hosts webinars that strengthen the work of the civil legal aid and public defender communities. Recordings of previous NLADA-hosted webinars are available here to make the ideas and expertise those sessions offer available to a broader audience.
Join this free webinar to learn how the Civil Rights Division and Office of Justice Programs of the U.S. Departments of Justice and the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education have effectively used enforcement tools to eliminate practices that have led to the creation and perpetuation of the school-to-prison pipeline.
