Wednesday, September 18, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

It’s not you, it’s law school. 

Join radical law students challenging the traditional notions of what three years at law school looks like.  We will discuss how to take your legal education into your own hands and create your own social justice curriculum, offer tips on navigating classroom hierarchies, and advice on how to hold on to why you came here.  Dinner will be served.

Hosted by the National Lawyers Guild – Berkeley Law Chapter & affinity groups.

More on who NLG is: Dedicated to the principle that human and civil rights are more sacred than property rights, the National Lawyers Guild seeks to unite lawyers, law students, legal workers and jailhouse lawyers to function as an effective political and social force to protect and defend communities, social justice movements, and political and grassroots organizations and activists advocating and organizing for those rights.

For over 80 years, the National Lawyers Guild has served as the legal arm of movements leading the fight for meaningful social change in the United States.  As a progressive and leftist legal organization, the NLG has represented and defended activists in the courtrooms and on the streets.
