Register Now for March 30 Legal History Webinar

The presentation focuses on research, education, advocacy, and community service activities by gay law students in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Madison, Buffalo, and New York City in 1972 and related legal activism occurring that year in Ohio, Colorado and Kentucky.

A PowerPoint slide show is narrated by attorney Thomas F. Coleman, founding president of the first gay law student association in the nation and who graduated from Loyola Law School in 1973.   It also provides a preview from LLS student Maria Reyes Olmedo about a presentation they are working on for LGBTQ History Month in October regarding the emergence of transgender, nonbinary, and law students of color as LGBTQ activists.  These presentations are followed by a question and answer session.

Students from other law schools as well as California lawyers and lay advocates are invited to attend.  MCLE credit is available for lawyers who attend since topics include issues involving criminal law and procedure, constitutional law, and the elimination of bias in the legal profession.

The free webinar is sponsored by OutLaw LLS and Spectrum Institute.  OutLaw is the LGBTQ student organization at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.  To register for this event, click here.
