Join us Virtually

The 2021 Virtual NCLA will offer a series of engaging online conversations between small groups of high school students and lawyers and leaders in government from across the country. We are excited to provide opportunities for diverse and talented students to learn about government, the law, and legal careers.

Teachers looking to nominate students

Do you know a student interested in law or government but without access to lawyers or legal professionals? Do you know a student with an interest in law or government, potential for leadership, or a commitment to social causes? If so, NCLA may be the perfect opportunity to help them see their future careers.
