The NALP Foundation for Law Career Research and Education was born in 1996, when NALP's Board of Directors launched an ambitious new project to establish a separate non-profit foundation, focused solely on research about and education for the legal industry.
The NALP Foundation now proudly celebrates its first 25 years of service to the legal profession.
Join us in 2021 as we celebrate our silver anniversary by expanding our long-term partnerships across the profession. During our 25 for 25 Challenge, we hope to engage at least 25 new law firm and corporate supporters (at the $2,500 level or above) and law schools (membership level based on FTE enrollment) by Fall 2021.
We plan to commemorate the 25 for 25 Challenge by creating special appreciations for these generous contributors, including a social media campaign, website recognition, and a 25th anniversary celebration later in the year.

Reflections on Past Achievements and a Look Ahead to the Future
As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, NALP published a commemorative issue of its monthly Bulletin in April 2021. This special edition included an article highlighting the origin of the NALP Foundation and a brief history of the Foundation’s landmark research projects, along with reflections from its three past and current leaders: Paula Patton, Tammy Patterson and Fiona Trevelyan Hornblower.
