Legal education and networking:

NPAP uses a variety of means to communicate with its members. We are on the cutting edge of online continuing legal education with a members-only listserv for sharing legal analysis, litigation strategy and information regarding expert witnesses and other topics, email bulletins regarding new cases and legal developments. Throughout the year we offer a number of continuing legal education seminars across the country as well as Conference Call Roundtables, taught by the most knowledgeable and dynamic experts engaged in police misconduct litigation. These events also provide members with the opportunity to network and organize regional groups.
