NAELA members are unique in that our clients and the people we serve often are in vulnerable situations and/or are potentially at risk. In recognition of NAELA's tenet of 'doing well by doing good' for our clients, the Aspirational Standards for Professional Conduct was developed and adopted in 2004 and revised in 2017. In this video current and former members of NAELA's Professionalism & Ethics Committee, both attorneys and scholars, discuss why these standards are an important guide for our members, and how they have become a cornerstone to NAELA membership.
Education is one of the pillars of NAELA Membership. In this video NAELA members from across the country, in both private and public practice, discuss the importance and value of attending a NAELA conference. NAELA's most recent conference, held in Boston in Spring 2017 was attended by over 400 members.
Advocacy is one of the pillars of NAELA membership. In this video NAELA leaders discuss the critical importance of our advocacy efforts, especially for our clients, how our public policy approach has evolved, and what each NAELA member brings to the table.
