In order to be accepted to the LGBT+ Family Law Institute, an attorney must first be a member of the National LGBTQ+ Bar Association and Foundation. The LGBTQ+ Bar was founded in 1987 by a small group of family law practitioners at the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis and has since developed into a national association of lawyers, judges and other legal professionals, law students, activists, and affiliated lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender legal organizations. For over thirty years, the LGBTQ+ Bar has been promoting justice in and through the legal profession for the LGBTQ+ community in all its diversity.
