This year, the NLG returns to the Benson Hotel, where the Portland Chapter hosted convention in 2005. All major programming (workshops, panels, CLEs, plenaries), the keynote address, and the awards dinner will all take place on-site. A historic hotel in Downtown Portland, the Benson is conveniently located within a few blocks of multiple MAX light rail stations, Pioneer Square, Waterfront Park, and local favorites such as Voodoo Donuts and Powell's City of Books.

We have negotiated a discounted rate of $154/night (single or double rooms) for all bookings made at least 30 days prior to your arrival date.

Book your room online here (select "Portland" under "Destination"), or call 888-523-6766 or 503-228-2000 and mention "National Lawyers Guild 2018 Convention" to receive the discounted group rate.
