Legal Observer Training

Legal Observers assist at protests, rallies, and other events to document and be a witness to any occurrences. Legal Observers are trained periodically throughout the year and upon requests from organizations for specific events. National Lawyers Guild (NLG) Legal Observers, often in neon green hats and apparel, are deployed to rallies and protests on behalf of political protesters committing acts of civil disobedience, to observe should arrests occur.

Join this training to become an official NLG Legal Observer! No previous legal experience is required. This training will be led by lawyers with the National Lawyers Guild - Rhode Island Chapter.
