National Lawyers Association (NLA) is a national bar association, founded in 1993. NLA is organized as a 501(c)(6) trade association (non-profit). Members are from all 50 states, District of Columbia, and points overseas. NLA is the only national bar association which supports the sanctity of life from conception until natural death, the sanctity of marriage between one man and one women, and the rule of law, justice, equality and truth as expressed in the transcendent truths set forth in the Declaration of Independence and in the United States Constitution.
The National Lawyers Association provides its members with national resources to assist you in building your practice, growing your contact network and advancing your knowledge in your particular area of the law through CLE and industry committees. The NLA is proud to offer a monthly newsletter, the NLA Brief, and accepts articles and updates from its members for publication. The NLA is also working on the establishment of an editorial board for the NLA Report, a journal that will offer analysis of key court cases, legislation and ballot initiatives at both the state and federal level on key constitutional issues, all to keep its members informed and educated. Membership dues also go toward advancing the goals of the Commission for the Protection of Constitutional Rights, an initiative to create state by state committees to provide outreach and expert analysis on state issues. The NLA is committed to meeting the needs and expectations of its members through the products and resources it provides and welcomes the opportunity to establish new partnerships with vendors.

The NLA Report
Planned to start in the Spring of 2016, the NLA Report will be published annually and will provide a detailed analysis of the trends of the previous year and the upcoming issues developing. The NLA Report is an eye opening evaluation of current issues and trends from leading legal minds and advocates in the United States and beyond. This report is the result of a collaborative effort across many organizations, religiously affiliated and otherwise, to create a monumental report on our ever changing culture and the challenges faced by those who believe that the United States Constitution was drafted to protect those transcendent truths held dear by the NLA and so many others in this great nation. Join today and help the NLA in bringing the NLA Report to reality.
Continuing Legal Education
The NLA is always looking for new ways to bring Continuing Legal Education opportunities to its members and is working with a national provider of Continued Legal Education classes to maximize the ability of its members to obtain CLE credits at a discount and to engage in speaking opportunities to bring issues important to the NLA to the legal community .
The NLA Podcast
The NLA Podcast is a bimonthly series that includes guest speakers and interviews on recent news events. The NLA Podcast series is currently in production and is scheduled for release later this year.
In response to challenges to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the NLA established the Commission for the Protection of Constitutional Rights. This Commission, led by a board of advisors from across the nation, is responsible for overseeing state committees whose mission is to evaluate and analyze legislation, court cases and ballot initiatives, provide updates and summaries of relevant issues, identify speaking and testimonial opportunities and engage in meaningful discussion on the issues important to the NLA. The NLA provides administrative support for the state committees, access to the NLA network of attorneys and experts and the important backing of a well-established national legal association. If you are interested in learning more about this important initiative, please contact us. The Commission is always looking for new members to join in this important effort.
Founded in 1997, National Lawyers Association Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) organization, is the educational arm of National Lawyers Association. The Foundation is dedicated to education; education both of attorneys, and of the general public, in matters concerning the Declaration of Independence and the principles and values of the Founding Fathers of our great country. The Foundation’s staff and board members have pursued their mission by sponsoring a writing competition for law students on matters relating to the Declaration of Independence and on America’s Rule of Law, by providing speakers who are experts in Constitutional Law and ethics during the NLA’s national and international conferences and by creating video programs, including for school age children, dealing with basic concepts of the Declaration of independence. To date, the children’s education project has been distributed in 48 states, and the video has been viewed by over 60,000 school children.

The NLAF has recently partnered with WonderWe, LLC, a digital giving portal to run its campaign to raise money for a video series on the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States. This historic video series will provide an unprecedented intellectual analysis of the philosophical and historical movements that lead to the specific provisions in these historical documents. With interviews with the nation’s foremost experts on Constitutional law and history, this project will lead its viewers to a true and remarkable understanding of why the truths as contained within the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, that we all hold dear, are transcendent and unchangeable.
