A Message from the NALA President

Every year NALA hosts an educational conference like no other – and this year that is especially true. We are thrilled to host our first-ever hybrid conference with sessions held both in-person and virtually. I’m excited to meet with many of you in person again at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, AZ from July 14-16.

The NALA Conference & Expo was developed specifically for paralegals and other legal professionals to help them excel in the legal profession. Not only that, but it is also a great place to socialize with friends, recharge, and energize your paralegal career.

This year's conference will provide all attendees with excellent networking opportunities, a chance to earn up to 15 CLE hours, and all the skills you'll need to elevate and enhance your professional career. To view the full agenda, please download the conference brochure.

You don't want to miss this incredible opportunity! I hope to see you this July in Arizona!
