The National Police Accountability Project (NPAP) is a non-profit membership organization of plaintiff's lawyers, law students and legal workers dedicated to ending police abuse of authority through coordinated legal action, public education, and support for grassroots and victims' organizations combating police misconduct. We are a project of the National Lawyers Guild.
Join NPAP today! Our members work on cutting edge police misconduct litigation. Our listserv is offered to all current members, and our CLE programs are offered to members at reduced rates. If you are a grassroots or victims' organization focused on police misconduct, please visit our resources and publications section to learn more.
This year’s annual NPAP CLE seminar at the NLG Convention again provides participants with an array of topics critical to the police misconduct practitioner, including successfully arguing damages in a 1983 case, ethical considerations in fee agreements, exhaustion requirements and deliberate indifference in prison litigation cases, as well as understanding Monell claims and indemnification and insurance issues to ensure your client can collect her judgment.
