Lawyers for the People
Back in Los Angeles, Joan Andersson and friend Dan Lund formed Lawyers for the People and became active in remaking and revitalizing the National Lawyers Guild, which had been foundering since McCarthy era witch hunts had decimated its ranks. Lawyers for the People was the precursor to the Bar Sinister, a law collective founded by Joan and Dan that defined itself as being in support of civil rights and peoples' struggles.
