Corporate Advisory Committee

You are here

Demonstrate your commitment to equal justice by joining NLADA’s Corporate Advisory Committee (CAC).  The CAC identifies ways to facilitate greater pro bono support for civil legal aid programs across the country. In addition, the CAC assists in formulating national strategies for generating public and political support for federal funding of legal services and bolstering the resource development initiatives of NLADA.

Joining NLADA as a CAC member provides you with a unique opportunity to strengthen your understanding of the issues and trends facing our nation’s civil legal aid and public defense systems, engage on substantive issues that are relevant to your company, and build lasting relationships with equal justice advocates and clients, as well as with your peers in the business community.

Learn more about the CAC with this new brochure.

The CAC was founded in 1992 under the leadership of former NLADA Board Member Jack Martin, Ford Motor Company vice president and general counsel. It institutionalizes Corporate America’s dedication to the principle of equal justice under the law and to explore the ways in which the corporate sector can help to ensure the availability of legal representation to low-income people in our nation.
