In 1946, 11 trial lawyers realized the great need to exchange information with other trial lawyers across the country, as this would help level the playing field against well-funded defendant corporations. Today, the NCA continues that tradition by sharing strategies and knowledge on how to hold wrongdoers accountable through our education programs.
