Welcoming Our Transgender Colleagues in the Law


“The only pathway past 'Othering' is human familiarity.” -  Ellie Krug

As transgender lawyers increasingly join our profession, lawyers are more likely to interact with them at their offices, in courthouses, and at bar events. How can we move past tolerance toward understanding so that we can meet our obligations of civility and professionalism, "the hallmarks of a learned profession dedicated to public service".

This panel of notable transgender lawyers and social justice leaders will discuss how the increasing visibility of transgender, non-binary, and non-gender-conforming individuals has changed the legal profession, and what they want lawyers to know so we can create an inclusive environment for all of our legal colleagues.
