About Us

The National LGBT Bar Association is a national association of lawyers, judges and other legal professionals, law students, activists and other affiliated LGBT legal organizations. The LGBT Bar promotes justice in and through the legal profession for the LGBT community in all its diversity, and it aspires to improve the quality of life for LGBT legal practitioners and law students until the time that LGBT legal professionals are recognized without discrimination, stigma or negative bias.

The organization has taken a leading role in many different advocacy efforts.

Additionally, the LGBT Bar has worked closely with members of Congress to protect and promote equality for LGBT individuals. Along with many committed members, the LGBT Bar also helps to educate the LGBT community about the ever-changing policies surrounding tax law, family law, and more following the monumental Supreme Court decisions.

Every year, the sharpest legal minds in the LGBT community gather at our Annual Conference and Career Fair, Lavender Law, an event featuring over 50 workshops and panel discussions and a career fair with over 170 recruiters.
