21-Day Racial Equity Habit-Building Challenge©

The goal of the Challenge is to assist in becoming more aware, compassionate, constructive, engaged people in the quest for equity, and specifically to learn more about the Native American communities. It transcends our roles as lawyers. Non-lawyers are also welcome to participate

Fellowships for Young Lawyers and Law Students

ABA fellowships put you in a position to grow, learn, and succeed through ABA member group involvement. These fellowships offer hands-on experience and training for law students and young lawyers. Some even fund your travel to join in-person meetings around the country.

Policing Transparency
