Case Western Reserve University School of Law

The NLG is dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system. We seek to unite the lawyers, law students, legal workers and jailhouse lawyers to function as an effective force in the service of the people, to the end that human rights shall be regarded as more sacred than property interests.

Our aim is 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 actively to eliminate racism; who work to maintain and protect our civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks upon them; and who look upon the law as an instrument for the protection of the people, rather than for their repression.

Our conference will include trainings, and lots of interesting conversation on RNC-related issues. We’re actively recruiting folks to work on legal observing (similar to election observing, except you’re watching protest situations instead of polls), as well as jail support (e.g., providing support for protesters when they come out of jail in the form of hot coffee and making sure they haven’t been injured, then calling to remind them of court dates and make sure they have a way to get to court afterward).

Conference is open to the public. Admission is $0-25, sliding scale. Light breakfast, plus lunch, and all day coffee provided.
