(dis)Orientation 2014 — It’s Not You, It’s Law School!

diso2014

 

 

The National Lawyers Guild Chicago Chapter is proud to announce our 2014 city wide DisOrientation!!!
 
Saturday, October 4th @1:00 p.m.
Loyola University, Corboy Law Center, 25 E. Pearson

DisOrientation is an event for students to discuss surviving law school with our values and commitment to social justice intact. Come meet NLG law students, legal workers, and attorneys, while attending various panels and trainings on how to become a peoples lawyer.

The NLG is dedicated to the need for basic change in the structure of our political and economic system. We seek to unite the lawyers, law students, legal workers and jailhouse lawyers to function as an effective force in the service of the people, to the end that human rights shall be regarded as more sacred than property interests.

Our aim is to bring together all those who recognize the importance of safeguarding and extending the rights of workers, women, farmers, people with disabilities and people of color, upon whom the welfare of the entire nation depends; who seek actively to eliminate racism; who work to maintain and protect our civil rights and liberties in the face of persistent attacks upon them; and who look upon the law as an instrument for the protection of the people, rather than for their repression.

Schedule:
1-1:30 Lunch
1:30-2:15 Welcome
2:30-3:30 Student Panel
