25th Anniversary

Outdoor Summer Party

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.

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.
