For the first time since the UN adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the global community is coming together in 2019 to focus on Goal 16’s call to “ensure equal access to justice for all.”  On this occasion, NLADA is launching an initiative to further connect the U.S. corporate community interested in advancing access to justice with opportunities to strategically collaborate with NLADA’s members to advance the goal of providing 100% access to legal assistance: justice for all.
