RECURRING EVENT (SEE ALL) 

HLS going remote this year presents a rare opportunity to showcase the amazing work of civil rights practitioners from around the country via a virtual platform. 

To that end, Alexander Chen, Founding Director of the LGBTQ+ Advocacy Clinic, has organized a series of Zoom brown bag lunches featuring attorneys from across the LGBTQ+ movement, with an emphasis on showcasing regional, educational, and identity-based diversity. The sessions will be relatively informal: an hour over lunch on Fridays, 12-1 pm EST, where each attorney will talk about their work and their career pathways into the movement. The scheduled speakers are:
