Lavender Law Conference – Junior Scholars


The National LGBT Bar Association is hosting its 2013 Lavender Law Conference & Career Fair to be held from August 22-24, 2013, in San Francisco, CA.

Each year, the Lavender Law Conference provides a challenging and rewarding learning experience for attendees and presenters. In addition to day-long seminars focused on family law and transgender issues, the 2012 conference will feature dozens of continuing legal education (CLE) workshops on cutting edge legal issues affecting LGBT individuals, their families and the community. Topics covered in recent years include marriage equality, HIV/AIDS, immigration, LGBT issues in criminal law, LGBT youth issues and many others.

If you are a junior law professor (teaching 6 years or fewer), or a recent law school graduate or fellow who is writing scholarship focusing on the nexus between the law, gender, and sexuality, we encourage you to submit a proposal for consideration. Proposals can be in the form of a full draft or in the form of an expanded abstract (approximately 1-2 pages in length). To submit a proposal for consideration, please email your submission to:, and cc: Courtney Joslin (

Deadline: June 15, 2013. Email submissions to scholars[@] and cc: Courtney Joslin (cgjoslin[@]
