We’re honored to announce that scholar, author, and activist Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor will be our keynote speaker! In addition, we have a great lineup of timely major panels, workshops, and CLEs planned, which you can check out here. Full descriptions with confirmed speakers for each event will be posted soon.

We’re also thrilled to announce the following 2020 awardees! (Additional awardees will be announced soon.)You can learn more about them here and congratulate them with an ad in our Awards Program Tribute Journal—all while supporting the NLG!

  • Jodi Hill: CB King Award
  • Charlotte Kates: Debra Evenson “Venceremos” Award
  • Sara Kershnar: Legal Worker Award

As a reminder, unlike our usual five-day format, we’re spreading out events over two weeks to allow participants across multiple time zones to attend as many events as possible. Even if attendees aren’t available to join every event live in real time, registrants will be able to access video recordings of programming to watch and engage with at their convenience. As always, we’re offering sliding-scale registration, with waivers available upon request, and no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. To support these efforts, please contribute what you can.

You can also be a #Law4thePeople sponsor in order to show your support for the NLG and help fuel our work for years to come. Sponsorships include convention registration and an ad in the awards program.

Stay tuned for further announcements about special events and social activities we’re organizing, and other ways to get engaged with the 2020 #Law4thePeople Convention! All info will be posted to In the meantime, please spread the word about #Law4thePeople on social media, and RSVP to the Facebook event here.

We can’t wait to see you soon!
