Local LGBTQ Bar Associations

Many states and cities have LGBTQ bar associations that strive to provide a strong presence of LGBTQ persons in the legal profession and in the community. These organizations often sponsor events that facilitate education, legal advocacy, and civic participation relating to LGBTQ issues. They also hold social networking and career-planning events for LGBTQ students and legal professionals. To find out if there is a local LGBTQ bar association in the area where you plan to attend law school, check out The LGBT Bar’s affiliates list or search the web for LGBTQ bar associations.
