NLG Supports Law Students!

Today's law students are tomorrows progressive lawyers.  NLG Colorado is committed to encouraging and supporting law students as they find themselves moving into their careers.  "Because I was involved in NLG as a law student, I had an automatic community of friends and mentors when I moved to Denver.  Even when I am weary from the fight, I love having the support of others doing similar work," said Jes Jones.  While a traditional legal education teaches the manipulation of abstract principles to maintain the status quo, a progressive legal education stresses the importance of thinking critically and creatively, using the law as a tool to further social change. 

Get involved with your student chapter!

Start the fall with support and encouragement.

NLG wants to help you get the most of your legal education, so get DISORIENTED!

NLG offers a community of support for law students, and a way of approaching your education in a fresh, progressive way.  Don't wait to the fall to get involved with the Guild!
