NAPLA - The Northeast Association of Pre-Law Advisors

NAPLA Membership News

NAPLA is offering to waive its annual membership fee for Regular Members (Pre-law Advisors) in the NAPLA Region (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Washington DC, and Virginia) for the 2020-2021 year ending on August 31, 2021. Go to Join NAPLA for details on how to request the waiving of your membership fee. 

NAPLA Programming Proposals

Each fall, the NAPLA Board calls on the full NAPLA membership to offer suggestions for any workshops, panels, or plenary sessions that they would like to attend and/or help coordinate for the upcoming conference. With the postponement of PLANC 2020 to 2021, we plan to hold our next NAPLA Conference in 2022.

In the meantime, NAPLA will offer virtual opportunities for professional development, support, and relationship building. We were pleased to see so many of you participate in our summer and early fall programs, “Financial Aid for Pre-Law Advisors” and “Law School Updates for Fall 2020.”

The NAPLA Board invites you to share your thoughts on additional programs you would find helpful or where you would like to contribute to the learning and professional skills of others. We are particularly interested in receiving proposals addressing access to legal education and the experiences of underrepresented students in law schools and the profession.

Submit your suggestions or ideas to NAPLA HERE.
