What is the National Lawyers Guild All About?

The overarching goal of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) is to bring together students who look upon the law as an instrument for the protection of the people, rather than for their oppression; who recognize the importance of safeguarding the economic and social freedoms, protections, and rights of people everywhere; and who seek justice and work to maintain and protect our civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks upon them. The New England Law chapter of NLG is committed to organizing and hosting Street Law Clinic trainings for students interested in teaching off-campus workshops that seek to educate non-lawyers about their rights under the law and what to do when those rights are violated. This year we will host trainings in Stop and Search and Tenants' Rights. Students that attend these trainings are encouraged to give back to the community by going out and helping teach Street Law Clinics.
