Trainings on Nonprofit Legal Issues

Lawyers Alliance's educational seminars and workshops assist nonprofit managers, leaders of community-based and nonprofit groups, and attorneys. We cover timely legal issues while offering a practical perspective.

Trainings for nonprofit managers
Non-lawyers -- especially staff and board members of New York nonprofit organizations -- are the main audience for many of these programs. Most of our programs are open to representatives of all types of nonprofit organizations. Some are specialized for grantees of certain funders or have a particular programmatic focus such as child care or elder services.

Trainings for attorneys
We also conduct a series of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs for attorneys, indicated below by the "For Attorneys Only" in the notes column.

 
 
Calendar of Upcoming Workshops
 
Cost: Unless otherwise indicated, the registration fee for nonprofit workshops is $60/person; $50/person if we receive payment at least three days in advance; $20 for nonprofit webinars; and free for representatives of current New York Foundation grantees.

CLE programs vary in cost, depending on the format of the training and the Lawyers Alliance volunteer status of participants. See each listing for specifics.
