NACDLConnect includes General, White Collar, Young & New Lawyer, and Women in Criminal Defense discussion groups. It provides opportunities to interact with other members, share knowledge and strategize together for the benefit of clients and the criminal defense profession.

You can post through the NACDLConnect website, or directly by email, and you can include file attachments either way. For each discussion group you join, there are four delivery options:
- Real Time – Receive a formatted email message in your mailbox each time a member of that community posts a message. Click links in the message to respond to the group, respond to the author only, see the author's other posts, post a new message, and more. Each message contains a link to "Reply by Email", which opens a response message in your email program.
- Daily Digest – For each subscription, receive just one message per day listing all the topics posted during the previous 24 hours. Respond to a single message, or view threads by topic.
- Plain Text – For participants who prefer to send and receive plain-text emails.
- No Emails – Switch to this mode when you want to stop receiving messages but remain subscribed. You can access your subscriptions any time from the website.
