Legal Observer Training

Event Description
Law Students, Faculty, and Community Legal Workers Welcome!

At this training taught by the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), learn how to support local activists by becoming a trained legal observer (LO).

The neon green caps of National Lawyers Guild LOs are a fixture at nearly every protest - LOs have been on the scene at actions from civil rights demonstrations in the 1960’s to #BlackLivesMatter protests in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square and alongside the people of the Standing Rock Reservation as they oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline #DAPL. Legal Observer training gives you an understanding of the legal issues that often arise out of mass actions and how to be an effective on-the-ground force defending people's rights.

The NLG Legal Observer (LO) program was established in 1968 in NYC in response to protests at Columbia University and city-wide antiwar and civil rights demonstrations. The NLG LO 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. LOs are typically law students, legal workers and lawyers.
