Membership in the National Lawyers Guild is open to attorneys, law students, jailhouse lawyers, and legal workers. Legal workers are defined as anyone who has worked in any office, collective or other institution which has as its primary function the provision of administration of legal services, information or education.
Each membership payment entitles members to four issues of NLG Review and three issues of Guild Notes, delivered either digitally or in the mail, as well as the right to vote in any NLG national election taking place during the period of membership, which lasts one year.
Members of minority bar associations need only pay half of the suggested rate for their income. This rate does not apply to committee dues.
We also offer firm and family memberships. If you join or renew as a firm or family you need only pay 75% of the total cost of membership dues for all members to joins as individuals. Thus, if you have two lawyers in a family or firm who would normally pay $300 each, you only need pay $450 together. This also doesn't apply to committee dues.
