LGBT Lawyers Association of Ireland
The LGBT Lawyers’ Association of Ireland is an educational, advisory and advocacy group made up of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and allied lawyers and students in Ireland. The aim of this association is to create awareness of the legal issues affecting the LGBT community, to combat discrimination and to advocate for equality. The LGBT Lawyers’ Association provides the following services:
- The LGBT Free Legal Advice Centre welcomes attendance by members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community who require advice on LGBT legal issues. This service is provided free of charge on the first Tuesday of every month from 7pm -8:30pm in Outhouse on Capel Street, Dublin 1.
- Lesbian and Gay Legal Network (LGLN) The Lesbian and Gay Legal Network is an initiative of the LGBT Lawyers’ Association of Ireland. The LGLN is a network of solicitors and barristers who have indicated their willingness to provide pro bono advice and representation including court advocacy, to members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Ireland who have experienced discrimination on account of their gender identity, expression or sexual orientation. This network is a referral service designed to match expertise in the legal profession with the needs of persons who have experienced discrimination on account of their LGBT status in order to facilitate public interest litigation.
- The Association will host a number of conferences and events to promote debate on legal issues relevant to the LGBT community. Notice of these events will be placed on this website as they arise. We encourage members and friends of the association to sign up to our mailing list to receive notification of events.
