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.
