The Fall 2011 NIFTEP workshop was also cosponsored by the National Organization of Bar Counsel. The Spring 2012 NIFTEP workshop was also co-sponsored by the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Section and the Summer 2012 NIFTEP workshop was also co-sponsored by the Canadian Association for Legal Ethics.
Participants in NIFTEP workshops are designated NIFTEP Fellows. There is no charge for workshop registration, lodging, or meals during the workshop.
