National Lawyer's Guild Up Against the Law poster

Join the Harvard Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild for a conversation about radical lawyers of the 1950s to 1970s. Through the fierce and often dangerous legal battles over American Communism, the Second Reconstruction, and the anti-war movement, attorneys of the NLG forged the “movement lawyering” profession we know today. Panelists include Luca Falciola, Columbia University lecturer and author of Up Against the Law, and HLS Professor Randall Kennedy.
