Affiliate Organizations

NACDL has 95 affiliated organizations spanning the United States, its territories, and the globe.

Affiliated organizations are recognized as such because their mission, goals, and structure mirror those of NACDL, and they are like-minded in their pursuit of ensuring justice and due process for persons accused of crime, improving the integrity, independence and expertise of the criminal defense profession, and promoting the proper and fair administration of criminal justice.

The Council of Affiliates. Your Voice.
The Council of Affiliates is comprised of (4) affiliate representatives who serve on NACDL's Board of Directors. Council members are elected by the local leadership of affiliated organizations and are responsible for representing the interests of all 95 NACDL Affiliates to its Board. The Council is primarily tasked with coordinating information and maintaining the relationship between NACDL and its county, city, state-wide, and international Affiliates.

Because the Council of Affiliates is your voice to NACDL, Affiliate leaders are encouraged to contact their designated Council of Affiliates members to enhance the effectiveness of the affiliate network.  

The Council is broken-up by region.
