Legal Observer Training

Legal Observers assist at protests, rallies, and other events to document and be a witness to any occurrences.  Legal Observers are trained periodically throughout the year and upon requests from organizations for specific events.  Once trained as a Legal Observer, LO’s may remain active throughout the year, taking a refresher course about once a year.

If you would like to be trained as a Legal Observer or would like to request Legal Observers for an event, please contact the Guild office (617) 227-7335.

NLG Legal Observers, often in neon green hats and apparel, are deployed to rallies and protests on behalf of political protesters committing acts of civil disobedience, to ojectively observe should arrests occur.
