|2014 LGBT Family Law Institute|
The 2014 LGBT Family Law Institute will be held in New York City on August 21 as part of the National LGBT Bar Association's annual Lavender Law® Conference, Career Fair & LGBT Legal Expo.
The Institute, a joint venture of the LGBT Bar and the National Center for Lesbian Rights, allows experienced LGBT family law practitioners to share collective wisdom and to discuss cutting-edge legal strategies for representing members of the LGBT community on such matters as family creation, assisted reproductive technology, ethics, interstate and international parentage issues, estate planning, collaborative law, transgender issues, dissolution of relationships and elder law.
In order to create an environment where there can be a free flow of information, the meetings are closed and are not recorded. Registration is limited to 125 participants whose work history qualifies them as seasoned attorneys. The Institute does not provide continuing legal education (CLE) credit.
Institute sessions are not formal lectures, but rather are structured to encourage participation from everyone in attendance. Further, the LGBT Family Law Institute gives participants an opportunity to network with lawyers from other states in order to build a cadre of family law practitioners throughout the country.
Applicants will be selected based on their experience with LGBT family creation, protection and dissolution. Applicants should have familiarity with these issues and may be asked to provide evidence describing their familiarity with LGBT family law.
The cost of the LGBT Family Law Institute includes registration to attend the rest of the 2014 Lavender Law Conference August 22-23.
