Judicial Education Institute

The Judicial Education Institute

The Judicial Education Institute is a joint venture between the IALGBTJ, the LGBT Bar and the Williams Institute of UCLA Law. The Institute provides a forum for judges and judicial officers to discuss legal issues that impact LGBT people and LGBT judges. The Institute also provides the opportunity to network with LGBT judges from across the United States and the world who can then serve as an educational resource to other LGBT judges and allies in considering LGBT 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 LGBT community including judicial ethics and judicial decision-making as well as substantive legal issues such as family law and civil matters. The IALGBTJ will assist any participants who desire to apply for judicial education credit from their jurisdiction.

There is no cost to attend the Judicial Education Institute to any current members of the IALGBTJ.
