New York State Bar Association and Sidley Austin LLP: Legal Developments in Transgender Rights – Monday, June 5, 2017 at 6:00 PM
Please join the New York State Bar Association and Sidley Austin LLP for a discussion on the current legal landscape of transgender rights, as we provide insight into how case law, legislation and social pressures have combined to influence the policies of private organizations, public institutions and federal agencies.
The 21st century has seen LGBT rights move into the spotlight with marquee legal battles. This program will analyze recent cases at both the state and federal level and discuss how those cases have framed the issues relating to transgender rights. We will also look outside the court system to the regulatory battleground and the legislative action being taken.
Speakers Hayley Gorenberg, Deputy Legal Director and General Counsel, Lambda Legal
