A Conference Designed for Newer Professionals
The Newer Professionals’ Forum (NPF) on March 2 – 4, 2017, will bring together newer professionals and experienced faculty members for two and a half days in Houston, Texas, to focus on the career development of newer professionals in the fields of legal recruitment, law student and lawyer professional development, and career services. Participants will engage in meaningful education tailored to the unique needs and perspectives of newer professionals, including learning about trends facing the legal employment industry and the role NALP plays in member professional development.
“For someone who has been in the attorney recruiting and professional development field for a little over a year, the NALP Newer Professionals’ Forum was the perfect environment to reinforce as well as build upon what I’ve already learned. The structured networking opportunities were outstanding. I had no idea how many resources that NALP provides for legal professionals, and I made valuable friendships that will help me develop my career further.” — 2015 NPF Attendee

Why should I send my new staff member or coworker to NPF?
The Newer Professionals’ Forum will provide attendees with opportunities to learn fundamental skills while growing their professional networks in legal recruitment, lawyer professional development, and career services. Law firms and law schools that send new employees to NPF will immediately see results in increased job proficiency and efficiency.

“My NPF experience was hands down the best professional development program I could have attended. As a law school professional, you will not find comprehensive training like this anywhere else. This conference should be considered a mandatory step in training for all newer professionals who are beginning their career in law placement.” — 2016 NPF Attendee
