2018 NLG Regional Conferences

2018 NLG Regional Conferences

Every spring, the NLG organizes regional conferences to bring together attorneys, law students, legal workers, allies and activists across the country. Featuring panels, trainings, workshops, and social events on topics of interest to the progressive and radical legal community, regional conferences also provide the opportunity to build community and strategize for the struggles ahead.

NLG regional conferences are open to all, so non-NLG members are welcome (although you’ll probably be convinced to join by the end)!
