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.
