2013 National Policy Conference Recap

Immigration Policy Counsel
for Senator Marco Rubio
Jon Baselice 
Last Friday, RNLA held the foremost conference for Republican Lawyers at the National Press Club.  The National Policy Conference brought together some of the greatest legal and political minds of today to speak on issues such as immigration, health care, tax, the second amendment and other legal issues affecting the states.

Congressman McCaul, Chairman of Homeland Security, opened the conference with poignant remarks on combating terrorism and national security including the recent Boston attack.

Attendees were able to get a glimpse into Watergate through the eyes of Senator Fred Thompson, former counsel to the US House Committee investigation Watergate, long before he became famous as a Senator and ficitional DA Arthur Branch on the TV series "Law and Order."

State Attorneys General Patrick Morrisey (WV), Sam Olens (GA), and Luther Strange (AL) spoke on issues such as religious liberty, voting rights, and weapons laws.  Their speeches were among the most popular with members and attendees.  Once again showing the future of the Republican Party, despite recent setbacks, is bright. 

Fred Fielding, the 2013 Ed Meese award winner and former White House counsel to three presidents delivered a riveting luncheon address that left attendees laughing, contemplating and asking for more. 

It was closing speaker RNC Chairman Reince Priebus who gained a standing applause after exciting the crowd with his remarks about the GOP Project and how the RNC plans to get Republicans motivated and excited.   Many attendees comment how motivated and excited they felt after hearing Reince speak. 

Conference sponsors and Elite members of RNLA were invited to a private reception afterwards to honor Fred Fielding with the Ed Meese award.  The Honorable Ed Meese is shown below remarking on the Rule of Law and how Fred has upheld it many times.
All guests were invited to attend a pre-conference reception on the gorgeous rooftop of King & Spalding LLP overlooking the White House.
