National Lawyers Guild

Faculty Advisor: Stacey Platt

The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) is an association dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system. The Guild seeks to unite the lawyers, law students, legal workers, and jailhouse lawyers of America in organization, which shall function as an effective social and political force in the service of the people, to the ends that human rights shall be regarded as more sacred than property interests.

NLG seeks to bring together all those who regard adjustments to new conditions as more important than the veneration of precedent; who recognize the importance of safeguarding and extending the rights of workers, women, farmers, and minority groups 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.

Loyola’s Chapter of the NLG is one of the most active organizations on campus.
