Welcome to the Georgetown chapter of the National Lawyers Guild!

We are a student group working to support Georgetown law students who are trying to stay engaged with the outside world in ways that are different than the typical, firm-bound law student. The NLG is dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system. Seeking to unite lawyers, law students, legal workers, jailhouse lawyers, and the academic community, the NLG works toward the idea that human rights should be more sacred than property. We aim to bring together all those who recognize the importance of safeguarding and extending the rights of workers, women, farmers, people with disabilities, and people of color, upon whom the welfare of the entire nation depends; who seek to actively eliminate racism; who work to protect our civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks.

Because we know law school can be an overwhelming force at times, the Georgetown chapter is dedicated to supporting each other as much as possible in creating the type of law school experience that is empowering, not dis-empowering. If you are interested in being involved, if you already have a specific passion that you want to pursue in the law, or if you are interested in exploring what your passion may be; then we'll do what we can to help!
