The LGBT Family Law Institute®, a joint venture of the LGBT Bar and the National Center for Lesbian Rights, allows experienced LGBTQ+ family law practitioners to share collective wisdom and to discuss cutting-edge legal strategies for representing members of the LGBT community.
Become a member of the LGBT Family Law Institute® today! Members of FLI must become members of the National LGBT Bar Association. After applying to become a LGBT Family Law Institute® member and a member of the LGBT Bar, you will be contacted for an interview before your membership is confirmed. Please contact Maddie Ivanovich at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the membership process.
The Family Law Institute® was founded in 2009 and meets every year at the LGBT Bar’s annual Lavender Law® Conference & Career Fair. In addition, all members are invited to an email listserv in which they can ask questions, give advice and simply communicate with fellow members. The LGBT Family Law Institute® gives participants an opportunity to network with lawyers from other states in order to build a cadre of family law practitioners throughout the country.
Note on community listserv: FLI members began using Google Groups for their internal communications in October 2020. If you are an FLI member and are not part of the Google Group listserv, please email Maddie Ivanovich at email@example.com for assistance.
