Dis-Orientation is an annual city-wide retreat for law students held by the National Lawyers Guild of Chicago. This year, Dis-Orientation was hosted by Chicago-Kent College of Law Chapter. The speakers for this year were lawyers and organizers with People’s Law Office, Chicago Community Bond Fund, Community Activism Law Alliance, First Defense Legal Aid, Uptown People’s Law Center, and other organizations.
Lavette Mayes of CCBF and Monica Crosby of UPLC explained what lawyers need to do to be accountable to oppressed communities and liberation movements.
The event was topped off with a Legal Observer training led by two experienced law student LOs from Kent Law School and John Marshall Law School.
