Announcement -- Request for Workshop Proposals
Lavender Law 2005 - San Diego
October 27th - 29th, 2005
Westin Horton Plaza
Every year, the sharpest legal minds in the LGBT community gather at Lavender Law®, the annual conference of the National Lesbian and Gay Law Association. Hundreds of practicing attorneys, law professors, law students, judges and legal professionals are expected to attend Lavender Law® 2005 - San Diego, California on October 27th - 29th at the Westin Horton Plaza Hotel.
Lavender Law attempts to provide the most challenging and rewarding learning experience possible for our attendees and presenters. In order to achieve that goal, Lavender Law asks that you look ahead to the future, propose a workshop, and do your best to meet our deadlines. These deadlines exist because Lavender Law operates with limited financial resources and staff and relies upon many volunteers to coordinate printed materials and meet CLE deadlines. Please do your best to get your proposal(s) in as soon as possible.
Lavender Law® offers dozens of panels, courses and plenary sessions on cutting-edge legal issues affecting LGBT individuals and the community, as well as a Career Fair. The country's leading legal thinkers -- both self-identified LGBT people, as well as our straight allies -- will instruct participants on practical litigation skills, constitutional law developments, will drafting and estate planning, employment discrimination, HIV/AIDS, immigration, workplace diversity, domestic violence, transgender and intersex issues, career development, and LGBT issues in the academy, the military, and the family.
If any special arrangements are required for a disabled individual, please call (202) 607-0732 by October 1, 2005. Lavender Law 2005 - San Diego looks forward to hearing your ideas!
