About Us

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, LGBTQ people, 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. (Excerpted from www.nlg.org)

While LA NLG coordinates and works closely with non-profit legal service providers and individual attorneys who assist with movement support and direct representation, the NLG is not a legal services provider nor a law firm. The NLG is a membership organization of social justice, public interest, community-based, and movement law attorneys.  Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
