LEGAL OBSERVER TRAINING:
The National Lawyers Guild Legal Observer program is part of a comprehensive system of legal support designed to enable people to express their political views as fully as possible without unconstitutional disruption or interference by the police and with the fewest possible consequences from the criminal justice system. NLG Legal Observers do not act as part of the demonstration but rather document interactions between demonstrators and law enforcement in anticipation of criminal defense or civil litigation.
Though NLG Legal Observers are typically law students, legal workers, and lawyers, trainings are open to everyone - except those working for or with government or law enforcement agencies - interested in being trained and serving as an NLG Legal Observer.
