Disorientation: Social Justice and Law School


Every year the NLG publishes a “Disorientation Handbook” for law students who aren’t satisfied with a traditional legal education. In the words of Arthur Kinoy, famed Guild lawyer and author of the handbook’s introduction, the purpose of the booklet “is to provoke you to challenge traditional notions of how one must practice law and to suggest ways to make your three years of study more enriching and challenging.” – https://www.nlg.org/disorientation/

At the beginning of each school year, a DC-area school holds a one-day Disorientation event. This is a great way to connect with like-minded students in the area, learn more about things happening in DC, and have a great start to the year. Many students find attending Disorientation and reading the Disorientation Handbook helping in preparing for law school.
