#Law4thePeople Convention

2017 #Law4thePeople Convention in Washington, DC – UDC David A. Clarke School of Law: August 2-6, 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! You don’t want to miss this convention, as the NLG will be celebrating our 80th Anniversary!


We’re thrilled to announce that this year’s Keynote Speaker will be economist, author, and Indigenous and environmental rights activist, Winona LaDuke (left). The Law for the People Award will go to the Water Protector Legal Collective for their legal support work at Standing Rock.

At the top of the site, under “Convention,” you’ll also find  TUPOCC travel stipend applications, meeting space request and volunteer forms. Be sure to visit nlg.org/convention for all #Law4thePeople related news. A tentative schedule, programming, and awardees will be announced soon!
