The National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) was founded in 1960-61. The Association’s purpose is to enhance legal assistance to colleges and universities by educating attorneys and administrators as to the nature of campus legal issues. It plays an important role in the continuing legal education of university counsel.
NACUA’s members are primarily non-profit, regionally accredited institutions of higher education in the United States, Canada, and further abroad. Each member institution is represented by a primary attorney, as well as additional attorney representatives. All representatives may attend NACUA meetings and workshops, as well as serve on NACUA committees or the Board of Directors. However, only non-profit, regionally accredited colleges and universities are eligible for full institutional membership. NACUA offers Associate Institutional membership to non-profit organizations that meet certain eligibility criteria, as well as Associate Individual membership to attorneys who are determined by NACUA to have a “commonality of interest” with NACUA member institutions.
NACUA produces publications and other legal resources, offers continuing legal education programming, maintains a listserv (NACUANET) and a variety of member-only web-based resources pages, and operates a clearinghouse through which attorneys on campuses are able to share resources, knowledge and work products on current legal concerns and interests.
