Gender rights law has become increasingly litigation oriented. This advanced class and seminar, led by two trans lawyers with local, regional and national gender rights practices, is about litigation procedures and gender rights law, primarily in federal venues. Litigation procedures include how to do factual and legal review, draft a complaint, plan a narrative strategy, construct viable causes of action, and run a case. Gender rights law includes the law as it is and a discussion of how it might be. Litigators and practitioners who want to learn about trans rights litigation are welcome.

Learning objectives

How to construct a complaint for a trans client; how to run a case.
