Want to put your law school education to good use? Want to protect civil rights? Want to wear a super fashionable neon green hat? Come get trained as a Legal Observer! The National Lawyers Guild's Legal Observer program is part of a comprehensive system of legal support for people expressing their right to protest. Legal Observers are neutral parties who document arrests, use of force, denial of access, and other infringements on protest rights. This information is vital to defending the rights of protesters. The training will be conducted by three experienced Legal Observers from the Triangle area. Sponsored by the Duke Law National Lawyers Guild and DBA.
