The National Association of Blind Lawyers (NABL), a division of the National Federation of the Blind, is a professional membership organization of blind lawyers, other blind legal professionals, and law students. NABL’s mission is to provide resources, mentoring, and collective action benefiting blind legal professionals to help all blind people live the lives they want.
We operate our programs largely through the support of generous donors. Please consider making a donation to the National Association of Blind Lawyers - any amount helps.

Previous Mock Trial Recordings: Celebrate Scott Labarre
This year, for the first time ever, we will be making available for purchase, a curated selection of previous NABL mock trials. Scott Labarre chose them himself prior to his passing. These recordings feature Federation lawyers, including Scott Labarre, Charlie Brown, and many others in a variety of roles. These recordings will be available via download, or for those attending the NFB Convention in person who prefer, via flash drive.
Individuals can purchase the recordings online, or they can visit Lisa Bonderson at the NABL registration table outside of our meeting room, or they can purchase them from Ronza Othman during General Sessions at the Maryland delegation. Proceeds will go to the Scott C. Labarre Leadership and Justice Fund.
