Resources for LGBTQ Applicants

  • LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools: This searchable guide, updated annually by LSAC and the law schools, contains information about every ABA-approved law school.
  • Association for Legal Career Professionals (NALP)—LGBT Resources: NALP offers a number of resources designed to help LGBTQ law students with career planning.
  • Lavender Law Conference & Career Fair: Every year LGBTQ law students meet with over 150 recruiting law firms, LGBTQ advocacy groups, and corporations at this national career fair. During the two-day conference portion of the event, dozens of panels, symposia, and courses are held to discuss cutting-edge litigation and legislative issues.
  • 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.
