2020 Employment Law Institute Program and Schedule
Our Lavender Law® Conference & Career Fair is going virtual for 2020. The Employment Law Institute will take place on Friday, August 14th as scheduled in a virtual format. The Institute will not offer CLE credit for 2020.
The Employment Law Institute is a space for the leading legal minds involved with labor and employment law, as it pertains to the LGBTQ+ community, to share ideas and network. Participants will share their collective wisdom and discuss cutting-edge legal strategies. To create an environment that encourages the free flow of information, registration is limited. The meeting will be closed and the proceedings will not be recorded. The Employment Law Institute is not open to law students.
This year’s ELI will consist of robust conversations about the impact and implications of the Bostock/Stephens/Zarda decision. As in past years, we will begin with full group conversation led by Michael Stevens of Seyfarth Shaw; this will be followed by breakout group conversations divided by Employee/Plaintiff/Government-focused attendees and Employer/Defense/Management-focused attendees. Join us for this deep-dive into the future of LGBTQ+ employment law.
