Being LGBTQ in the Legal Field: Are we there yet?

William H. Gates Hall

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Laws that are inclusive of the LGBTQ community are being passed all over the country. Is this fact making it easier to be an LGBTQ attorney? Join panelists who attended law school in three different decades, and who have experienced a variety of legal environments throughout their careers for a discussion of what it was like then and what it is like now. Panelists: David Ward, Legal Voice; Angelica Chazaro, UW Law; Lillian Hewko, National Women’s Health Network; and Kim Gunning, Washington State Attorney General’s Office. Please join us for a wine and cheese reception immediately following the panel discussion.
