2020 Litigation & Advocacy Leaders: Conference Agenda

 

PRE-CONFERENCE

Building Strategic Advocacy: Culture and Practice | Saturday, July 11

Standard 2.6 of the ABA’s Standards for the Provision of Civil Legal Aid tells us “A provider should strive to achieve both clients’ objectives and lasting results that respond to low income communities’ most compelling legal needs.” It’s often easier said than done to implement lasting results. To do so, programs need to be strategic. This interactive training will help provide you with the tools to do that. We will draw from the expertise of several legal aid leaders in both LSC and non-LSC programs, as well as the work developed through NLADA’s Strategic Advocacy initiative program. The core themes of the training will be:

  • Leadership Buy-In: Why it matters to have your executive director, board, and top program leadership supporting strtegic advocacy, and how to secure that support.
  • Program Wide Buy-In: Strategic advocacy flows up from the day-to-day case work of capable staff attorneys. Learn how to include everyone in the process of developing and implementing strategic goals.
  • SWOT analysis of your program, through the lens of strategic advocacy.
  • Building frameworks for managing and sustaining strategic advocacy.

This preconference training costs $130 for NLADA members and $175 for non-members. Includes continental breakfast and lunch. Register at www.NLADA.org/2020LALC
