Call for Presentations

Since first offering NLC PROTECTS Seminars in 2006, the National Law Center for Children and Families has produced nearly 20 seminars across the nation, and has trained over 1800 attendees to protect children from sexual exploitation.

The NLC currently has openings for qualified speakers for our 20115 seminars. We seek to continuously augment our quality training program with dedicated professionals who are devoted to making a difference in confronting the scourge of child exploitation by training the front line professionals in law enforcement, prosecutors, probation and parole officers and investigators across the nation.

NLC Training features locally and nationally known experts, dedicated attorneys and law enforcement professionals involved in investigating and prosecuting crimes against children, in order to train government attorneys and law enforcement with the most up-to-date resources available to to detect and prevent these crimes.
