A LITTLE ABOUT US
Welcome to the homepage of the Vermont Law School Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild. The National Lawyers Guild is dedicated to the need for basic and progressive change in the structure of our political and economic system. Through its members—lawyers, law students, jailhouse lawyers and legal workers united in chapters and committees—the Guild works locally, nationally and internationally as an effective political and social force in the service of the people.
The National Lawyers Guild is a nationwide group of lawyers, law students, legal workers, and others interested in social, economic, and political change. The VLS Chapter sponsors events designed to increase public awareness of civil rights, national security, environmental, and social justice issues. Specifically, the VLS Chapter hosts trainings, conferences, a radical speaker series, and advocates participation in the democratic process through non-violent direct action.
