The NLG Street Law Clinic is offering the free “Know Your Rights” clinic.  It’s part lecture, part Q&A that educates folks about their rights and effective tactics if they happen to have an encounter with law enforcement.  The clinic covers First Amendment rights, Fourth Amendment, Fifth Amendment rights, FBI questioning, police encounters for immigrants, and more. The program is run by NLG attorneys and law students who are experienced in these areas of law.The clinic will be held virtually over Zoom. The presenters will run through written materials, and then will do a bit of Q&A.  Depending on what questions folks have, the workshop can run anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half. We love this format because it allows for an open conversation between an organization’s constituents and the attorneys. Attendees will have free rein to ask specific questions that may be especially pertinent to themselves and the work they do.

The July 12th workshop will feature Mason Kortz, a Massachusetts attorney with civil rights experience. You can get more information about the National Lawyers Guild Mass Chapter by visiting their website HERE

For the workshop itself, on Monday, July 12th (mark your calendar!) the Zoom link is HERE
