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.
