Co-presenters include Molly Frandsen from Outten & Golden, Jon Davidi from Panish Shea Boyle Ravipudi and Fred Messner from Keller Postman.
The National Plaintiffs Law Association seeks to challenge the false binary of large corporate law firms and traditional public service jobs by providing law students with career and networking opportunities in the plaintiffs’ bar. NPLA formed in early 2023 as a coalition of individual Plaintiffs’ Law Associations at law schools across the country.
