New Professionals Workshop 2020 Add-On

Fourth Annual NALSAP Conference

June 17-19, 2020 in Denver, C.O.

The Fourth Annual National Association of Law Student Affairs Professionals Conference will be held at University of Denver Sturm College of Law in Denver, C.O., from June 17-19, 2020.


New (& Newer) Professionals Workshop Add-On

*Separate Registration Link Below

We will be offering a half day add-on workshop on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 for NALSAP Conference attendees who are newer to the Law School Student Affairs profession. 

The goal of this workshop is to provide insight to newer professionals regarding the language, best practices, and common challenges surrounding our work in law student affairs.   The topics for this inaugural program, including mental health, student organizations, and diversity and inclusion, were chosen by our membership. 

We hope that the workshop will enable newer professionals both to get more out of the NALSAP conference and to return to their schools with ideas of how to better support their students. We encourage those with two years or less in the field to attend.  However, the program is open to all attendees who feel the material will be helpful in their positions.
