Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund Name Change Project Pro Bono Training

Start/End Tuesday, November 19, 2013 12:10 PM EST -- 01:10 PM EST
Location Name WJW L107

Learn how to provide free name change services to transgender New York City residents in need of legal representation and then work with pro bono attorneys from Sullivan and Cromwell. Lack of appropriate identity documents can deter transgender people from applying for jobs, schools, and public benefits, and can lead to discrimination. Although they are in need of legal representation, many transgender individuals find interacting with the court system and judges intimidating. Students will get the opportunity to interact with clients, and gain courtroom experience while helping someone in need. RSVP at:
