While CLE credit is not pre-approved for this event, forms will be available at the event for attorneys seeking CLE credit.

The 21st Annual Conference on Race Class Gender and Ethnicity, Gender Identity and Justice: The Role of Law in Defining and Advancing the Rights of Transgender People, considers the role of law in transgender issues. The Conference will examine both the positive advances as well as the stalled progress in the law to recognize transgender rights. To explore these issues, the Conference invites practitioners, academics, advocates, and local community members to consider how the law has both supported and failed the transgender community, and what steps can be taken to define and advance the rights of transgender individuals. Conference topics include the legal treatment of transgender individuals in the law, the complicated relationship between medicine and law for transgender people, and legal regulations in daily life that specifically impact the transgender community. We hope to explore how best to achieve meaningful reform to better serve and support the transgender community.

Participation is free for all area students, $20 for community members/non-area students/non-CLE attorneys (although no one will be turned away for lack of funds). Payment will be accepted during registration on the morning of the Conference by cash or check.

Thursday, January 12, 2017 8:00 AM - Friday, February 24, 2017 5:00 PM
