People's Law Practitioners Gather at NLG Regionals

Every year, the National Lawyers Guild organizes regional conferences to bring together Guild attorneys, law students, legal workers, and community members across the country. These regional conferences include panels, trainings, and workshops on topics of interest to the radical legal community. They also provide the opportunity for NLG members to talk to allies and supporters about the Guild’s work and vision. This year, each regional conference was hosted by an NLG law student chapter in collaboration with the NLG National Office, regional representatives, and local Guild members.

The Supreme Court’s decision in Clapper vs Amnesty Int’l  has now made it nearly impossibly to review through civil lawsuits many of the government’s most egregious tactics in the war on terror. While the decision in Clapper is new, it reflects a continuing saga of a war not on terror, but on the rule of law. Another part of that saga has involved our government’s treatment of, and denial of due process to, those accused of terrorism.
