The RNLA National Policy Conference is where the legal world and the GOP political world come together to hear and discuss the important issues facing us today. This year the conference will present a chance to hear from leaders of the Trump Administration and Attorneys General. This year's Conference is titled "The Rule of Law in the Trump Administration" and will highlight the many successes of the Executive Branch under President Trump and issues facing it. All this and up to six units of Continuing Legal Education credit.

The RNLA has confirmed a distinguished attorney and Republican leader, whose name will not be released until the conference, as recipient of the Hon. Edwin Meese III Award. Mr. Meese himself is planning to present the award. Following the conference, we will be presenting the Ed Meese Award at a special reception.

Unique for this year is we have confirmed speakers which we cannot yet announce. These speakers that we cannot announce are lawyers on the forefront of the fight for the rule of law.

Confirmed speakers include:

The Honorable R. Alexander Acosta
