    Held in recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots, the conference features two plenary programs and three breakout sessions addressing both litigation and career-development topics.  One plenary, "LGBT+ Issues in a Post-Kennedy World", will address the future of LGBT+ litigation in the United States Supreme Court. The second will discuss the impact of Stonewall on the LGBT+ movement, including civil rights litigation. Attendees can select three breakout sessions on topics such as surviving and thriving as LGBT+ litigators, transgender advocacy, family formation, and the use of LGBT+-inclusive language in the law. Registration includes an evening reception, and attendees can choose to participate in organized dine-arounds and purchase tickets to the closing luncheon. We look forward to welcoming you in New York City as we learn from national experts and network with LGBT+ lawyers and allies from around the country!
