LGBT Bar Association - Our Programs

The National LGBT Bar Association encourages the advancement of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender legal community and has compiled a list of programs and resources available to LGBT Bar members and supporters.

  • JURY ACCESS ACT/JUROR NON-DISCRIMINATION ACT

    The Jury ACCESS (Access for Capable Citizens and Equality in Service Selection) Act (S. 447) and Juror Non-Discrimination Act (H.R. 864) prevent discrimination in jury selection based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

  • LECTURE SERIES

    The LGBT Bar’s Lecture Series features some of the best legal minds in the country discussing some of the most critical legal issues we face today.

  • GAY AND TRANS PANIC DEFENSE

    The LGBT Bar is proud to be leading the effort to ban gay and trans “panic” defenses across the country. In 2013, The American Bar Association unanimously approved a resolution – introduced by The Bar – calling for an end to these heinous defense arguments.

  • LAWYER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

    Between exacerbating factors such as the high stress and demands of the profession and the isolation that often comes with long hours, many attorneys find themselves up against these very serious challenges. Fortunately, programs across the country offer assistance to attorneys in need.

  • TRANS MILITARY ADVOCACY

    The LGBT Bar’s Military Law Working Group has completed a project calling on the Administration to allow transgender military veterans an opportunity to change their military discharge paperwork (known as DD 214) to reflect their current name and gender.

  • AMICI BRIEFS

    The National LGBT Bar Association has submitted Amici briefs that have been used in cases concerning LGBT issues. We have provided these briefs for public viewing here on our website.

  • STUDIES

    We have provided studies that cover a range of publications concerning LGBT issues. They are often sociological and are very interesting, informative and helpful.
