Transgender students have found themselves on the national stage after several federal and state lawsuits and controversial state legislation has come front-and-center regarding transgender student rights. Especially since federal guidance, federal law, and state law/policy currently remain unaligned. Join us for the latest information on this evolving area of law. Administrative law attorneys, child law practitioners, mental health lawyers, education attorneys, general practitioners, and attorneys who represent transgender students with all levels of experience who attend this program will better understand:

  • The current state of the law with respect to transgender students;
  • The status of legal battles taking place around the country; and
  • The practical implications for school districts, transgender students, and their families.


NOTE: Your registration includes access to electronic course materials that will be sent to you via email prior to the seminar. Printed course materials may be purchased for a nomial fee via the registration page.
