Since the 1930s, the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) has worked to advance human and civil rights. The NLG is a progressive bar association of lawyers, legal workers, and law students dedicated to overcoming political, social, and economic injustices. The Massachusetts Chapter of the NLG is joined by over 300 legal professionals, united in an organization which functions “as an effective political and social force in the service of people, to the end that human rights shall be regarded as more sacred than property interests.”
