April 2020 is National Child Abuse Prevention Month


Fulfilling Our Mission

For the past 26 years, the National Law Center has been protecting children from sexual exploitation by training and equipping Law Enforcement Officers and prosecutors across America with the most cutting edge investigative strategies to prevent, detect, and successfully prosecute crimes against children, especially online luring and technology-facilitated crime.

For many years, the NLC has been producing extensive legal materials, national guidance, and training in the area of child sexual exploitation law. NLC PROTECTS Seminars prominently feature national experts on threat assessment, child pornography investigation and prosecution, Internet forensics, online enticement investigation, human trafficking, and other child sexual exploitation issues.
