Announcing the 2021 Progressive Law Day Agenda

Progressive Law Day is a free half-day conference, historically organized and led by law student members of the National Lawyers Guild, San Francisco Bay Area Chapter, and open to legal workers, lawyers, activists, and anyone interested in learning about radical lawyering and legal work.

Progressive Law Day 2021 will be held on campus at UC Hastings College of the Law, with an appetizer hour to follow that will be the kick off event for the relaunch of our local NextGen/Mentorship Committee. While we are optimistic about hosting this event in-person for the fall, we are prepared to transition this event virtually in the event of circumstances beyond our control.
