The LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) Committee of the Columbus Bar Association seeks to bring together lawyers and legal professionals interested in the different facets of the LGBT community: those who represent members of the LGBT community, those who are members of the LGBT community, and those who share an interest in the laws and public policies related to the LGBT community. In an effort to better serve clients and the profession, the members of the LGBT Committee join together to share ideas and to update Columbus Bar members on topics of concern to all who participate in the field of LGBT law or deal with LGBT legal and public policy issues.
The LGBT Committee also seeks to create networking, social and mentoring opportunities and support systems within the LGBT law community to help committee members build successful and rewarding professional lives.
A Message from the LGBT Committee Chair
“Welcome to the LGBT Committee of the Columbus Bar Association! We are looking forward to a full year of substantive programming as it relates to LGBT legal, professional and development issues. This year we plan to concentrate on outreach efforts with respect to law students who identify as LGBT and allies, who are just entering our profession. We also hope to promote networking and social outlets to facilitate a closer community. The success of our Committee will be completely dependent on the participation and involvement of our members. Everyone is welcome and we encourage your ideas for topics of discussion, referral of presenters and invitations to your friends in the community to make this Committee as inclusive and representative as possible. Thank you!”
