The NLADA Corporate Advisory Committee (CAC) was established in 1992 under the leadership of Jack Martin, then Ford Motor Company Vice President and General Counsel. The CAC, a prestigious group of general counsel from major corporations, enlists the help of America s corporate community in fostering national support for NLADA's mission of ensuring the availability of quality legal representation to persons who are unable to afford counsel.

CAC members work with NLADA leadership to identify means to develop and strengthen corporate pro bono initiatives that contribute to the delivery of legal services to poor people. Members also assist in formulating national strategies for generating public and political support for federal funding of legal services and support the resource development efforts of NLADA.
