National Lawyers Guild

Mission Statement:

The National Lawyers Guild is a progressive association of lawyers, law students, legal workers, and jail house lawyers, dedicated to upholding the credo that human rights are inherently more valuable than property rights. As the country’s first racially integrated bar association, the National Lawyers Guild has historically and consistently worked for the advancement of marginalized people in the areas of human rights, labor relations, immigration reform, police accountability, and housing rights. The National Lawyers guild has traditionally engaged and politicized law students through events such as Legal Observer Trainings, Disorientation, and the Week Against Mass Incarceration. The Kline chapter of the NLG is actively seeking to address issues of housing insecurity, workers’ rights, criminal defense reform, and international human rights violations through teach ins, speaker events, clinics, and various community oriented pro bono projects.
