The NATA has several classes of members including the following: regular members, sustaining members, members of the Circle of Advocates, and associate members. Membership in NATA is open to lawyers and students in law school.
The benefits of membership in the Nebraska Association of Trial Attorneys include invitations to the NATA Annual Dinner which is a black-tie optional dinner.
