Ohio NLG Legal Observer Request Form
The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) 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 act part of the demonstration but rather document interactions between demonstrators and law enforcement in anticipation of criminal defense or civil litigation.

The Ohio Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild asks that all requests for Legal Observers are submitted AT LEAST one full week in advance. We will try to fill all requests for Legal Observers; however, we cannot guarantee the availability of Legal Observers.
