Late Afternoon CLE - The Representation of LGBTQ Witnesses, Victims, and Defendants in the Justice System

CLE_The Representation of LGBTQ Witnesses, Victims...

Hosted by the Criminal Justice Section

Members of the LGBTQ community face unique obstacles in the criminal justice system. From their first contact with law enforcement, regardless of whether they are a witness, victim, or defendant, they are at-risk for harm from both conscious and unconscious bias.

Every participant in the justice system, including police, prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, probation and parole officers, the media, court staff, and other justice system participants, have a responsibility to educate themselves on these issues.

This CLE will present common scenarios where the human and constitutional rights of members of the LGBTQ community are violated in the justice system and how members of the Bar can work to bring about change.

Join your colleagues and learn how to spot and navigate through these issues to advocate for the members of the LGBTQ community ethically, fairly and equitably.
