Who should attend this event?

    Attendance at this event is open to all attorneys from public and private companies, firms, non-profits, government, and educational institutions.

    How do I become a NAWL member?

    If you are not already a member, simply sign up for Mid-Year Meeting at the non-member rate, which includes a NAWL membership. If you are attending using a sponsor ticket, you may add a membership on to the cost of your registration.

    Is this event accredited? Can I earn CLE?

    NAWL will apply for CLE credit in Florida, Illinois, and Pennsylvania (with reciprocal credit anticipated in California, Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York). NAWL may also apply in other states based on where attendees are licensed. Speaker attendance is not guaranteed and is subject to change without notice.

    Who do I speak to about my special dietary needs?

    You may include this information during online registration. If you have already registered, please e-mail us at nawl@nawl.org with request at least two weeks prior to the conference so that we can accommodate any special dietary requirements.

    What is the dress code?

    The dress code is business.

    Are there scholarships available?

    NAWL will offer scholarship assistance for this conference to a limited number of attorneys who wish to attend but may not be able to do so due to cost considerations. Those attorneys who are actively employed in non-profit, government, educational institutions or small companies, or those that have been actively employed in such institutions in the past 12 months but are now in transition, are eligible for assistance. The financial assistance covers all or part of the registration fee for the events on February 28 - March 2, but does not include travel or meals outside of those served as part of the program.

    The application process requires the applicant to demonstrate her eligibility and to provide a short essay setting forth the reasons why she believes she is an appropriate candidate for receiving scholarship funds, including how the conference will benefit her, and information regarding financial need. Applicants should send materials to Karen Richardson at krichardson@nawl.org. Applications are due by February 2, 2018. Download application here>>
