Biases the LGBTQI Community Faces in the Legal System

Event Description

Register Today | Walk Ins are Welcome

This event is part of the Barrister's Breakfast in support of Joyce Preschool, and is co-sponsored by The Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association, The Hennepin County Bar Association's Diversity Committee, and The Minnesota State Bar Association.

You can register separately for the Barrister's Breakfast here   

The CLE will consist of a panel discussion led by attorneys with experience in immigration and employment law. The panelists will address challenges and biases the LGBTQI community faces in our legal system in the context of those seeking asylum, immigrant youth, and discrimination in the workplace. The CLE will inform attendees of current challenges and legal trends, but most importantly will provide guidance on how to best represent clients by also bringing awareness to issues such as cultural competency and organizations that provide crucial services to the LGBTQI community.  

Location: Joyce Preschool at Park, 3400 Park Avenue, Minneapolis MN 55407
