A special shout-out goes to the Lambda students at the William H. Bowen School of Law at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. They close out an academic year of good programming with their final event, a discussion on “Transgender People and The Law,” Monday, April 27, 2009, from 12:00pm to 1:30pm. This event is free and open to the public. Here’s the description:
Co-sponsored by Bowen Lambda and the ACLU of Arkansas Student Chapter , this program seeks to promote an understanding of what it means to be transgender and of the challenges transgender people face. Program includes the following speakers and topics:
Olivia Powers‘ personal story as an individual who transitioned from male to female; a survey by Mike Lauro of how courts treat transgender litigants; Prof. Terri Beiner’s analysis of transgender sexual harassment and employment discrimination; and perspectives on mental health by Margaret Morgan. We will suggest ways to make laws and policies more fair and how society can be more inclusive of transgender people.
If attending, please RSVP to email@example.com. (They need a count for lunch.)
