Your Legal Education Doesn't End in School
NALS student members have unique needs and we are here to serve and assist you on your path to achieving a long and successful professional legal career.
In addition to scholarships offered by NALS of Tucson & So. AZ locally and by NALS of Arizona state-wide, student members are encouraged to attend monthly educational seminars, seasonal state conferences, annual regional conferences and semi-annual national conferences. Student members are also welcomed to join and participate in chapter activities through assisting on event committees and serving alongside NALS leaders in the community.
NALS leaders work hard to mentor student members and assist them in the advancement and development of their education and then later in their legal career. Many of NALS's members have been employed in the legal community for decades, and the value and benefits of their sharing their knowledge and experience to a student entering the workforce is immeasurable.
We encourage our student members to contact us with ideas of what we can do to assist you in your educational and professional pursuits.
