NITA is devoted to providing all lawyers with access to legal skills training. Our public service programs teach relevant advocacy skills to dedicated groups of attorneys and advocates working in areas including, but not limited to, child advocacy, death penalty defense, disability, domestic violence, elder law, immigration, legal services, and tribal justice.
The NITA Foundation’s International Rule of Law and Access to Justice Fund, along with dedicated funds from the NITA Board of Trustees, helps support our international programming efforts. The programs supported must be part of a national or regional purpose of promoting the rule of law or of promoting access to justice for persons denied such access.
