About Us

The National Lawyers Guild is the nation’s oldest and largest progressive bar association and was the first one in the US to be racially integrated. The Guild’s mission is to use law for the people, uniting lawyers, law students, legal workers, and jailhouse lawyers to function as an effective force, valuing human rights and the rights of ecosystems over property interests, in support of peoples’ struggles for liberation. 


This is achieved through the work of our staff, members, and the Guild’s numerous organizational committees, caucuses, and projects, reflecting a wide spectrum of interrelated issues. Guild members effectively network and hone their legal skills in order to help create change at the local, regional, national, and international levels. The NLG is a member-supported and member-funded organization. The Guild is committed to working in partnership with allies and in coalition with broader social justice movements, and we strive to be accountable to grassroots movement leaders.
