National Lawyers Guild (NLG)

The NLG was established in 1937 and was the nation's first racially integrated bar association. It has a rich 65-year history of helping people struggle for real democracy, for economic and social justice, and against oppression and discrimination. The NLG takes the position that neither democracy nor social justice is truly possible when there are vast disparities in individual and social wealth as exist today. As a grassroots organization, NLG will take whatever shape WE decide it should take. Everyone who joins will have a voice in how the group operates and what issues and activities it supports. Whether you are a novice or a veteran to the social action movement, there is a place for you in NLG at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at ASU.
