The National Lawyers Association is a voluntary association of lawyers in the United States, similar in many respects to the American Bar Association (ABA), but farther to the political right. It was founded in 1993 in response to the ABA's official position in favor of abortion rights.

Apart from the pro-life stance embedded in the organization's bylaws, the NLA is officially apolitical. The NLA bylaws prohibit the organization from taking a stance on any other social issue without the approval of two-thirds of the total membership.


The mission and goals of the organization as listed on their website and in their documents are to:

1. Preserve and protect the structure of the government of the United States of America as established by its Founding Fathers.
2. Promote the principles and transcendent truths set forth in the Declaration of Independence including but not limited to the Sanctity of Life, the Rule of Law, Equality, Justice.
3. Improve the image of the legal profession by promoting and encouraging members to adopt and maintain the highest of ethical and moral standards.
Provide services, benefits, technology, education, guidance and professional assistance to its members.
4. Encourage members and the legal community as a whole to earn the respect and trust of the American people by conducting themselves with professionalism and integrity at all times.
