 Registration is closed for this event

The National Lawyers Guild was founded amid growing corporate resistance to progressive legislation and today we are again confronted with the need—and the opportunity—to remake our society. Join us for groundbreaking discussions on movement law, and be a part of the legal arm of liberation movements! The NLG's 2017 #Law4ThePeople Convention will take place in Washington, D.C. Wednesday, August 2 - Sunday, August 6, 2017! Join hundreds of legal professionals, scholars and activists for five days of interactive CLEs, workshops, and panels by members of the oldest and most progressive public-interest bar association in the country.

The event will be held at UDC David A. Clarke School of LawCurrent UDC Law students and 2017 graduates will receive free convention registration.

Current Guild Members receive a 20% discount. Join the Guild or renew your membership to receive the reduced rate. If you're already a current member in good standing, please register here instead to obtain your members-only discount.

Please Note: The true cost of the convention is hundreds of dollars per person. However, like the NLG's membership fees, convention registration rates are sliding-scale suggested amounts. No one is turned away for lack of funds. Please contribute whatever you can so that we may continue providing conventions that are affordable for all. Your support keeps the Guild alive—thank you!
