Continuing Legal Education (CLE) is a fundamental component of life as a judge, attorney, or legal professional. When it comes to advancing LGBTQ+ equity and access to justice, ongoing professional development requires not only expanding one’s knowledge of substantive areas of law and the enhancement of practical skills but also deepening one’s awareness of the diversity within LGBTQ+ lived experience and the growing of one’s cultural competency, diversity awareness, and inclusion best practices. These needs also exist for jurists, practitioners, and professionals who are themselves members of LGBTQ+ communities. This session discusses model trainings offered in a range of settings to diverse audiences including law schools (faculty and students), private firms and corporations, courts, and bar associations.
Speakers: Arielle Adler (Lowenstein Sandler LLP); Lisa Burke (New Jersey Judiciary Administrative Office of the Courts); M. Dru Levasseur (National LGBT Bar Association and Foundation); Jean-Marie Navetta (PFLAG); Nicole Seawright (City of Philadelphia Law Department)
