White-Collar Crime Listserve
With over 700 NACDL members, NACDL’s White Collar Crime Listserve is the best resource for keep abreast of white collar news, legal developments, recent publications and upcoming events. The Listserve is a forum for new and experienced members who practice or have an interest in white collar law to grow professionally by sharing and exchanging advice and expertise on cases, strategies, questions, referrals and recommendations with their colleagues. The array of topics that enter the Listserve’s discourse range from accusations of criminal misconduct on Wall Street and Main Street to wrongdoing in a wide variety of civil and administrative settings. White collar crime is broadly defined to include any nonviolent crime that does not solely involve firearms, drugs and drug trafficking, pornography and individual immigration violations. In accordance with NACDL’s stated mission, the Listserve’s goal is to endow active participants with a robust understanding of white collar criminal law in order to advance the expertise of the criminal defense profession and ensure justice and due process for all accused persons.
The Young & New Lawyers Listserve
For criminal defense lawyers who are new to the profession, or just starting out in private practice. Generally, lawyers under 40 years of age, or in their first five years of practice. We also encourage you to participate if you are getting your start in private practice after spending time clerking, working as a DA or PD, or are leaving a firm to start your own practice. More experienced lawyers who have a gift and dedication to mentoring are encouraged to participate and offer advice and share their experience with younger colleagues. It's a place for attorneys getting their start - in whatever way - to get to know each other and to learn from more experienced colleagues. It is a forum where you can ask questions about all those things you need to know that they don't teach in law school.
