As a sponsor of the 2019 Lavender Law® Conference & Career Fair, organizations must agree not to host any event which may compete with the events scheduled by the National LGBT Bar Association. This includes, but is not limited to, evening receptions, lunch seminars, or other functions targeted at LGBTQ+ and ally law students and/or legal professionals.

The LGBT Bar is a registered nonprofit and as a result works diligently to keep administrative and overhead expenses as low as possible. Accordingly, The Bar asks that your firm, corporation, or organization remits their sponsorship or donation via paper check. If you must use a credit card, please consider making an additional donation of 4% of your remittance to cover processing fees. Thank you.
