Golden I Scholarship - NALS... the association for legal professionalsThe NALS Leadership Identification Committee (LIC) has an ongoing duty to NALS...the association for legal professionals to identify the brightest and best shining stars the legal profession has to offer.  Once identified, the LIC encourages participation in NALS leadership on the national level.  In furtherance of these efforts, the LIC has been awarded $600 by the NALS Foundation for the Golden I Scholarship Program.

The Golden I Scholarship Program is designed to attract applicants from the legal field who can demonstrate one or more Golden I - Initiative, Innovation, Insight, and Inspiration.  Applicants are not required to be, but may be, NALS members to be considered for one of these scholarships.  The only requirements are that the applicant currently work in the legal profession, and that he or she be able to demonstrate and give specific examples of how he or she has acted with Initiative, Innovation, Insight, and/or Inspiration in one or more areas of his or her life since March 2015. These are not merely words, but instances of action. The LIC believes these actions are the foundational building blocks of leadership.


Initiative: The ability to assess and initiate things independently; the power or opportunity to act or take charge before others do.

Innovation:  The action or process of innovating; a new method, idea, product, etc.

Insight:  The capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a person or thing.

Inspiration:  The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative; the drawing in of breath.


If you or someone you know is a rock star legal professional who has demonstrated one or more of these characteristics since March, 2015, and you or your rock star contact is planning to or would like to attend the NALS 65th Educational Conference & National Forum in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, October 6-8, 2016, please complete the application below and submit it by no later than June 1, 2016. Surely you know someone you believe to be a bright spot who is willing to attend the Conference! That someone might be you! However, if you do not believe this scholarship is right for you, but you know someone who embodies one or more of these characteristics, we encourage you nominate that person. 

The LIC will review all applications and award no more than six (6) $100 scholarships to be applied to the cost of registration for the NALS 65th Annual Educational Conference & National Forum in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The deadline to submit an application is June 1, 2016, and scholarship winners will be announced on June 15, 2016. Scholarship winners must register to attend the conference by the early-bird deadline on July 1, 2016.  

Any scholarship winners who do not register by the early bird deadline forfeit their scholarship.  Scholarships will not be paid in cash, nor will they be permitted to be applied to any other conference-related expense outside of registration. 

This program was made possible by a grant from the NALS Foundation!  We look forward to receiving applications from all of our rock star legal professionals! See you in Murfreesboro!
