Introducing the new board members of the NLG Review!
The NLG Review is the NLG’s intellectual journal which aims to publish timely, insightful articles that address and respond to the interests and needs of the progressive legal and activist communities. lt has been on hiatus since late Fall 2020, as we have been strategizing ways to increase capacity, streamline the editorial process, and improve the publication overall. We’re thrilled to have the following Guild members as part of the NLGR team, as they will help facilitate this process and bring readers a new-and-improved NLG Review in 2021—and beyond!
Stay tuned for the publication’s relaunch coming this October! In the meantime, read about the new NLGR board members below, and browse past articles at nlg.org/nlg-review.
