National Lawyers Guild (NLG)

The National Lawyers Guild is a space for students who value human rights over property interests and who are dedicated to progressive change in the structure of our political, social and economic system. The Guild is a vast network of legal professionals who work locally, nationally and internationally as an effective political and social force in devout service of the people. The Penn Law Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild organizes critical responses to timely national and local issues relevant to lawyers, law students, and the community at large. In addition to hosting social and political events throughout the year, Penn NLG is committed to creating and sustaining student led initiatives that are devoted to areas of critical importance. Our working groups have made profound impacts in the areas of tenant’s rights, survivor advocacy, alternative curricula, decriminalization, legal observation, and providing on campus safe spaces.
