National Lawyers Guild - San Francisco Bay Area Chapter
Dedicated to the principle that human and civil rights are more sacred than property rights, the National Lawyers Guild seeks to unite lawyers, law students, legal workers and jailhouse lawyers to function as an effective political and social force to protect and defend communities, social justice movements, and political and grassroots organizations and activists advocating and organizing for those rights.
The San Francisco / Bay Area Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild (NLGSF) has met this need for the past 50 years. Our chapter has played a significant role in supporting the resurgence of social movements demanding racial and economic justice in the Bay Area. With a membership of over 700 progressive law students, legal workers, jailhouse lawyers and attorneys, NLGSF is the largest NLG chapter in the country.
