The National LGBT Bar Association boasts the largest group of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender law students in the country. The LGBT Bar is dedicated to fostering the education and professional progression of its law student members by hosting the largest minority legal career fair in the nation: the annual Lavender Law Career Fair.
Each year, the Lavender Law® Career Fair draws over 500 law students from around the country. The event allows students to interview and connect with top law firms and corporate legal departments as well as government and non-profit agencies. Additionally, law student attendees invited to participate in three award competitions designed to recognize the next generation of LGBT legal professionals. Awards geared specifically toward law students are the:
- Student Leadership Award

Law student members of the LGBT Bar also have the chance to prove their leadership skills by becoming one of the 12 regional chairs in the organization’s Law Student Congress. If you are interested in getting involved with the Law Student Congress, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
