My friends boyfriend says Glee is like porn. You deal with the "plot" to get to the big show.

Has anyone ever been to Lavender Law? (Probably not on this thread since we're 0Ls by definition). So better question would be, is anyone considering going to it?

I'm very curious about it, because it seems like Creating Change (which is awesome anyway) except much more awesome because it is focused on legal issues.

Do 1Ls typically attend?

First I've heard of it but it looks pretty cool. I'd probably wait and go my 2L year because of the timing. It's so early into the semester that I'd just be getting used to 1L classes and I wouldn't be able to take advantage of the career fair because of the ABA rules.

From what I have heard, most school will not send 1Ls to the Lavender Law Conference but it is the 2Ls and 3Ls that go.

1Ls don't typically go; most schools are wary of you missing any class that early in the term.

I'll almost definitely be going this year; it's the week after OCI finishes and it only eats into 2 possible callback days. Plus, it's extra interviews with firms I might not have gotten via bids at OCI. PLUS, it's in LA.

Checking in!

I'm excited at the overlap between this and the UChi 2014 thread, as well as the gaymers. :)

I'm kind of shocked there seems to be so much gay in the prospective UChi class this year. Not what I expected!

+1, pleasantly surprised of course! :mrgreen:


Keep in mind, I'm bi, so I'm only a half a gay.

That's good, UChi could use more gays (and bisexuals of course).

Everywhere could do with more (out) gays and bisexuals and trans people!

@ my alma mater, those who were still in the closet had secret message boards to post on, depending on your orientation. They had great titles like "Hi Fi Bis" (reference to an ATL electronics store) and my personal favorite "TRANSformers, more than meets the eye."

Love TRANSformers name, and tag line!

My undergrad has such a very long way to go on trans issues :( One of my close friends just began the transition process (FTM/genderqueer) after graduating (he still works for the university), and it's so hard for him.
But we are doing better with the LGB now (except when it comes to people of color, I feel).

Wait...people can be TWO minorities at the same time? NO WAI. :roll:

My roommate for 2 years of undergrad was a blind, queer, WoC. She had a fun time.

Oh, don't even get me started on my undergrad's fail-ness at dealing with ability issues.

(And, I know, right? One of my friends was joking that they invite me on so many student/youth advisory boards because they can check off so many boxes with me at once (queer, woman, PoC, international) :p)

I know I've shared this with you in personal messages but for all you young'uns out there when I was a student (applepiecrust and I share an alma mater) the LGBT group had to fight a legal battle to be recognized by the university and I never joined for fear of being seen going into one of their meetings.
