The conference is a gathering of Guild members from the region — legal workers, law students, lawyers, and jailhouse lawyers — at which we make decisions about regional governance, share victories and resources, and learn more about the important work Guildmembers are doing in the Northwest.
The 2016 conference will be held April 9-10 at the University of Washington School of Law.
This year’s theme is intersectionality and the law. Highlights include: special guest panelist Natasha Lycia Ora Bannan, President of the National Lawyers Guild; keynote address by Dean Spade, Professor of Law; anti-racism training; panels on local resistance to mass incarceration and organizing for housing and economic justice. CLE credit pending for Oregon and Washington.
