About Us

The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) is dedicated to progressive change in the structure of our political and economic system. It was founded in 1937 as the first racially integrated U.S. bar association.

Student chapters of NLG sponsor annual events like Disorientation, which provides progressive law students with a sense of community and support in an educational environment that can often feel alienating and disheartening. We also train students on how to monitor police misconduct so they can volunteer as Legal Observers at local protests.
