NLG Letter to Progressive Turkish Legal Groups

We would like to extend our sincere solidarity with our fellow lawyers and legal workers fighting for the rights of all those who have been detained, arrested, and violently attacked for peaceful protest in the last few weeks.

The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) is closely following the situation in Turkey. We are aware of the extent of death, injury, and human rights violations committed against protesters, journalists, medical personnel, and lawyers.


High Crimes: Strategies to Further Marijuana Legalization Initiatives

In November 2012, Washington and Colorado became the first states—and the first jurisdictions in the world—to legalize the possession, use, and regulated distribution of marijuana. Although Attorney General Eric Holder promised in March 2013 to announce a Department of Justice policy to address the state initiatives, the White House has yet to take a position. This shifting legal terrain is the subject of “High Crimes: Strategies to Further Marijuana Legalization Initiatives,” a new report by the National Lawyers Guild (NLG).
