Trans Law Symposium 2015

This year's Trans Law Symposium will be held in Chicago on Friday, August 7, sponsored by Jenner & Block. 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.

The conference organizers expressed thanks and appreciation to the National LGBT Bar Association, which so generously hosted the Trans Law Institute in previous years. This event will be a stand-alone event, and is not affiliated with the Association.

The keynote speaker is M. Dru Levasseur, Transgender Rights Project National Director for Lambda Legal, pictured above.
