Lawyers for

Democratic institutions, rights, and values are clearly and explicitly under attack; not just at the federal level, but in state and local governments across the country. Conflicts of interest, corruption, gerrymandering, voter suppression, threats to freedom of the press, discriminatory policies — the list goes on. We now wake up wondering what new crisis our government will create for the American people each day.
In the wake of the 2016 election, more than 125,000 lawyers and concerned citizens joined together to resist these threats through two new organizations: Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG) and the Lawyers for Good Government Foundation (L4GG Foundation).
Unlike other organizations, L4GG and the L4GG Foundation harness the volunteer energies and talents of tens of thousands of lawyers distributed throughout the country who are ready, willing, and able to coordinate and mobilize quickly in defense of democratic institutions, individuals at risk, and “good government” principles.
L4EJ’s participating attorneys are newer attorneys who are launching and growing socially conscious law firms. To accelerate the attorneys’ practice development, L4EJ holds mentoring circles every Monday from 3:30-5:00. Mentors answer questions and provide advice on law practice management, substantive legal issues, ethics, and professionalism. This is a great opportunity to share your experience with newer members of the profession.
The mentoring circles are held at L4EJ’s offices in downtown Atlanta. We can validate parking in the Peachtree Center International Deck. If you are interested, please sign up here. And feel free to contact us at info@l4ej.org with any questions.
