NAALJ is offering two $500 Neil Alexander Scholarships to assist NAALJ members in attending a one-week course at the National Judicial College (NJC) in Reno, Nevada. The scholarships are in honor of a NAALJ colleague who at the time of his untimely death was chief hearing examiner of the D.C. Commission on Human Rights. He was co-chair of the 2007 NAALJ Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.
