The National Lawyers Guild  is holding a *free* 1.5hr training on April 14th, 2014 for lawyers interested in understanding how to approach protest legal cases where the client has acted out of moral necessity and has (often-times) been arrested on purpose. We hope to help show how attorneys can provide zealous advocacy while also representing the political goals of activists.
