About the NLA

The National Lawyers Association (NLA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, 501(c)(6) membership organization devoted to advancing the legal issues that concern our members. Without regard for politics or prevailing fashion, we dedicate our work to the belief that there is a national imperative to improve the legal profession and the justice system of the nation. There's never been a more important time to be a member of the NLA.

The NLA is a community lawyers, legal scholars, professors, law students and other legal and policy professionals committed to expanding liberty, increasing individual freedom, promoting justice and strengthening the rule of law based on jurisprudence of original intention.


The NLA holds to the rule of law. We are 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.


Our mission is to Preserve and protect the structure of the government of the U.S.A. as established by its Founding Fathers; to promote the principles and transcendent truths set forth in the Declaration of Independence including but not limited to:

  • the Sanctity of Life;
  • the Rule of law;
  • Justice and Freedom;
  • Improve the image of the legal profession by encouraging members to maintain the highest of ethical and moral standards;
  • Provide services, benefits, technology, education, guidance and professional assistance to its members; and
  • Encourage members and the legal community as a whole to earn the respect and trust of the American people by conducting themselves with utmost professionalism and integrity at all times.


The National Lawyers Association is led by a Board of Governors, each of whom is elected for a three year term. Each Board member must affirm the statement of purpose of the NLA and agree to abide in all respects to the NLA policies and commit to the values of the NLA. The Board of Governors meet each year for an annual meeting, but holds quarterly and special meetings as required. The NLA officers include a President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer, each elected by the Board at the annual meeting for a two year term.

The NLA Board also has a standing Executive Committee comprised of the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer, and enacts other standing or special committees as needed to manage the operations of the NLA. The NLA also encourages state and law school chapters and works diligently to build this network of affiliated organizations. The NLA State chapters are individually incorporated, have their own bylaws and further the aims of the national organization as well as their local priorities.


NLA members are diverse in their background, areas of practice areas and setting. Members of the NLA includes solo practitioners, in-house counsel, large firm executives, compliance and privacy officers, finance officers, judges consultants, regulatory professionals, those employed in health care, public health, government, and academia.
