Students & Professionals
Since its inception in 1988, Lavender Law® has served as a ‘family reunion’ for LGBTQ+ and ally legal professionals to both look back at our shared history and to look forward to the future of the legal profession. The Lavender Law® Conference & Career Fair is the largest LGBTQ+ legal conference in the country with approximately 1700 attendees attending annually. We are excited to be bringing you our first-ever virtual conference in August, 2020 and look forward to holding our reunion in an online format with you.
By becoming a sponsor of the LGBT Bar’s largest event of the year, your organization will have the opportunity to demonstrate its support of LGBTQ+ diversity in the legal profession as well as your commitment to the LGBTQ+ community. Sponsors have access to a large and diverse forum to showcase company activities and learn about others’ ideas for improving diversity demographics relating to self-identified LGBTQ+ attorneys.
The National LGBT Bar Association’s annual Lavender Law® Career Fair is designed to achieve a sense of community and inclusion for LGBTQ+ candidates within the legal profession’s recruiting efforts. By participating in this Career Fair, candidates will talk directly to LGBTQ+ friendly recruiters from law firms, government agencies, LGBTQ+ rights groups, and corporate legal departments. If your organization wishes to recruit at the Lavender Law® Career Fair, you must register as a sponsor. As of May 2020, we already have a record number of law students registered and excited to participate in our 2020 virtual Career Fair!
Nearly 400 candidates and almost 190 recruiters representing law firms, government agencies, and non-profit organizations interested in diversity were present at the 2019 career fair in Philadelphia.
