Community Law Workshops

CLWLogoCSE offers free Community Law Workshops (CLW) in the communities we work with. The goal of CLW’s is to empower LGBT people in the South to protect our rights to the full extent possible under current laws. CLWs take two forms: (1) community education sessions led by attorneys about special topics in LGBT law, such as name changes, family rights and advances in the law; and (2) legal clinics at which volunteer attorneys provide pro bono services. We are proud to collaborate with community partners and law firms to provide these free workshops. Learn about past CLWs here.

Upcoming Community Law Workshops
