The Haywood Burns Fellowships for Social and Economic Justice provide an alternative vision of what lawyers can do: a vision that too few law students are exposed to during their three years in the classroom. This initial exposure to progressive lawyering is often the single most significant event in young aspiring lawyers' career paths.
Your gift will ensure that Fellows will have the political and legal placements that are instrumental in launching lifelong careers as people’s lawyers.
All donations of $100 or more to the NLG Foundation made on this page are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
Of course, any amount you give will be sincerely appreicated. If you would like smaller gift to support the Fellowships, please make your donation here directly to the Guild; donations to the National Lawyers Guild are not tax deductible.
