Each year, the LGBT Bar recognizes approximately 40 lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender legal professionals less than 40 years old who have distinguished themselves in their field and demonstrated a profound commitment to LGBT equality. This year's prestigious list includes 40 honorees who will be recognized during the organization’s Lavender Law® Conference & Career Fair in San Francisco, CA on August 3, 2017.
“This year’s awardees demonstrate the strength and perseverance of LGBT attorneys in the legal community," said D’Arcy Kemnitz, executive director of The National LGBT Bar Association. “These young attorneys represent the very best of the profession. They come from law firms, non-profits, corporations, and the government. They give their professional and personal time to the betterment of the LGBT community. The work of these outstanding individuals highlights the important role that lawyers play in the success of a movement. These 40 practitioners are a perfect example of just how much lawyers really do change lives.”
