Group Description

The National Lawyers Guild is the oldest and largest public interest bar association. It is an organization of lawyers, legal workers, and law students dedicated to achieving social and economic justice through litigation and law-related programs and projects. The student chapter of the Guild at the Moritz College of Law is a separate student chapter with ties to the national organization. As a progressive organization, the Guild is concerned with political and legal issues outside of the law school, and it seeks to keep students informed and involved. In addition, the student chapter focuses on issues of particular importance to law students, such as university policies and career opportunities.

The chapter also maintains contacts with practicing lawyers and the non-legal progressive community - giving an important perspective on the law school experience. The Guild invites all students to become involved, to help the NLG continue to be a dynamic and prominent student group. We seek to unite the lawyers, law students, legal workers and jailhouse lawyers of America in an organization that shall function as an effective political and social force in the service of the people, to the end that human rights shall be more sacred than property interests. Our aim is to bring together all those who recognize the importance of safeguarding and extending the rights of workers, women, farmers and minority groups, upon whom the welfare of the entire nation depends; who seek actively to eliminate racism; who work to maintain and protect our civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks upon them; and who look upon the law as an instrument for the protection of the people, rather than for their repression.
