The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Law Clinic is a new clinic which is a collaborative effort of Harvard Law School’s student-run organization Lambda and Center staff. The Clinic will provide a broad range of direct legal services to the LGBT community with a particular emphasis on family-law related legal issues (child custody, support and visitation, second-parent adoptions, and school-related issues) and estate planning (wills, powers of attorneys, partnership agreements) to ensure that same-sex partners and families are legally protected. In addition to direct legal services, the Clinic will actively participate in creating systemic change and policy reform to further the rights and interests of the LGBT community.
Students wishing to work in this clinic must enroll in Family, Domestic Violence and LGBT Law: Litigating in the Family Courts A (fall) or B (spring).
We also encourage interested students to concurrently enroll in Legal Profession: Delivery of Legal Services (A or B) which satisfies the Law School's Professional Responsibility Requirement.
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Law Clinic is part of the Legal Services Center’s Family Law Practice Group. For more information on the Clinic, contact Clinical Instructor Nnena Odim at email@example.com or (617) 390-2548.
