National Lawyer's Guild
Co-Presidents: Tom Clees [e-mail], Derek Woodman [e-mail],
The National Lawyers Guild is an association dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of the political and economic system. The GW chapter seeks to unite law students with lawyers in an organization driven by the need to regard human rights as more sacred than property interests. Members act as legal observers for protests in the Washington, D.C., area, run public awareness and letter-writing campaigns, organize panel discussions, provide volunteer assistance to attorneys working on political cases, and generally support commitment to progressive lawyering.
