About the Judicial Education Institute
The Judicial Education Institute is a joint venture between the International Association of LGBTQ+ Judges, the LGBTQ Bar Association and the Williams Institute of UCLA Law. The Institute provides a private forum for judges and judicial officers to discuss legal issues that impact LGBTQ+ people and LGBTQ+ judges. The Institute also provides the opportunity to network with LGBTQ+ judges from across the United States and the world who can then serve as an educational resource to other LGBTQ+ judges and allies in considering LGBTQ+ issues in the judicial system.
Institute sessions are closed and limited to judges and judicial officers in order to promote a meaningful dialogue among judges on legal issues related to the LGBTQ+ community including judicial ethics and judicial decision-making as well as substantive legal issues such as family law and civil matters. Participants may apply for up to 3 hours of judicial education credit from their jurisdiction through the National Judicial College.
There is no cost to attend the Judicial Education Institute to any current members of the LGBTQ+ Judges’ Association.
