National Lawyers Guild was founded in 1933 as a national, progressive association of lawyers dedicated to using the law as a tool for social and economic change. The Guild Charter values the rights of persons over property rights and its work reflects this focus on human rights. The Law School chapter of the Guild is joined with the Hartford chapter, giving a diverse organization of students and attorneys to plan Guild events for the Hartford area. National Lawyers Guild sponsors speakers on campus and co-sponsors events with other student groups also. The Guild chapter at the Law School is open to all and becomes what the members make it. It looks forward to welcoming new members and to sharing its events with the Law School community.
