Legal Observer Training: 9am to noon

National Lawyers Guild (NLG) Legal Observers document interactions between demonstrators and law enforcement in anticipation of criminal defense or civil litigation.

The 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. This half-day training will prepare you to serve as a legal observer at direct actions.
