Mission Statement

"The National Lawyers Guild is dedicated to the need for basic and progressive change in the structure of our political and economic system. Through its members - lawyers, law students, jailhouse lawyers and legal workers united in chapters and committees - the Guild works locally, nationally and internationally as an effective political and social force in the service of the people."

The University of Maryland Law Student Chapter seeks to unify like-minded students who regard economic and social justice as essential elements of the freedoms, protections, and rights of all individuals. We aim to facilitate the education of University of Maryland Law students and Baltimore community members with regards to issues concerning the maintenance and protection of civil rights and liberties, the safeguard of human rights, the elimination of oppression of women, indigent individuals, and people of color, the elimination of racism, and the extension of rights to laborers and farmers. Additionally, the University of Maryland Law NLG Student Chapter provides opportunities for students to build meaningful relationships with attorneys, judges, and other members of the legal profession while gaining valuable and substantive legal experience in the Baltimore community.
