NDAA’s mission to serve and support prosecutors and their staff. In consideration of this commitment, NDAA requires that all those in attendance of our programs currently work in or work closely with prosecution. This training is designed for a very diverse audience, attorney and non-attorney administrative personnel in a government attorney’s office. The government attorney’s office may be military, civilian, tribal government, federal or state, and local. We welcome chief prosecutors tasked with both administrative and litigation responsibilities, attorney-administrators have transitioned from litigation to purely administrative duties, and non-attorney administrators with hands-on working relationships with attorney litigators.
