2020 Regional Conferences

Every spring, the NLG organizes regional conferences to bring together attorneys, law students, legal workers, allies and activists across the country. Featuring panels, trainings, workshops, and social events on topics of interest to the progressive and radical legal community, regional conferences also provide the opportunity to build community and strategize for the struggles ahead. NLG regional conferences are open to all, so non-NLG members are welcome (although you’ll probably be convinced to join by the end)!

Dear Northeast Members,

We are sad to report that due to the continuing and unpredictable spread of the coronavirus across the Northeast Region, we have decided to reschedule the Northeast Regional Conference planned for March 28, 2020 to October, 2020. We are acting out of an abundance of caution to ensure the well-being of our members and the host campus of UConn School of Law. All registrations will be fully refunded. Please be on the lookout for registration materials in the near future. We look forward to seeing you in October 2020.

Yours in Solidarity,
