National Legal Aid and Defender Association
Scope and content note: The NLADA collection came to the NEJL in several accessions and covers the time period from about 1975 until 2005. Most of the processed materials document the work of the Legal Services Corporation, and cooperation between the LSC and the NLADA, as well as the development of regional legal services organizations arranged by state. Additional accessions, which cover the organizational history of the NLADA, and the work of the civil and defender divisions, are currently being processed.
National Legal Aid & Defender Association (NLADA), founded in 1911, is America’s oldest and largest nonprofit association devoted to excellence in the delivery of legal services to those who cannot afford counsel. For 100 years, NLADA has pioneered access to justice at the national, state and local level through the creation of our public defender system, development of nationally applicable standards for legal representation, groundbreaking legal legislation and the creation of important institutions such as the Legal Services Corporation. NLADA serves as the collective voice for our country’s civil legal aid and public defender services and provides advocacy, training, technical assistance and the NLADA Insurance Program to its members, who are comprised of legal professionals, institutions and the people they represent.
