Federal Bar Assn's LGBT Section pushing LGBT professional development
From a press release
2017-07-02


Arlington, VA — The Federal Bar Association's LGBT Law Section is working to enhance the successful practice and development of LGBT Federal Practitioners and their allies. The Section supports and educates professionals with an interest in LGBT-related issues. In addition, it serves and assists each chapter and circuit of the Association by developing and implementing programs, publications, and activities involving LGBT-related legal issues. The Section currently has 51 members.

The Section is historic - it was developed in 2016, 96 years after the start of the Federal Bar Association in 1920 — and includes members of the federal judiciary, government agencies, and the private bar. In April, the LGBT Law Section was a sponsoring organization of a day-long Continuing Legal Education ( CLE ) event in New Orleans. Panels throughout the day, featuring FBA Secretary, David Thompson, discussed LGBT issues in their relation to law. The Section is working hands-on across the nation to shed light on LGBT issues and bring together communities. For more information, visit www.fedbar.org/LGBT . Chirag Badlani, Section Chair, and Honorable Judge Michael J. Newman, President of the Federal Bar Association, are both available for comment or an interview.
