We are proud to announce that we are creating our own, stand-alone event, the Trans Law Symposium. We send our thanks and appreciation to the National LGBT Bar Association, which so generously hosted the Trans Law Institute in previous years. This event is not affiliated with the Association.
The Symposium features leading edge attorneys who are
bringing the cases and enacting the laws and policies
that make a difference for the trans community.
