Pride in Law is an unincorporated association for charitable purposes. Pride in Law is also registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission. As a national professional organisation, Pride in Law was founded to provide:
* VISIBLE LEGAL EDUCATION: Organise scholarly forums to engage lawyers and their allies in current LGBTIQ+ legal debates through visible events.
* PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING: Coordinate monthly lawyer-to-lawyer networking meetings. Pride in Law holds monthly socials and quarterly legal networking events.
* ADVOCACY IN THE LAW: Collaborate with a wide range of lawyers across multiple disciplines to confront pressing issues involving the LGBTIQ+ community and their allies.
Pride in Law is Australia’s first and only LGBTIQ+ Law Association. We are ‘Law Focused, Pride Inspired’. Pride in Law is designed to bring together the LGBTIQ+ legal profession across multiple disciplines.
Pride in Law is not exclusive to any single area of legal discipline. Whether you're a law student, corporate lawyer from a top tier firm, judicial associate, a criminal solicitor, government legal officer, family practitioner, child protection lawyer, barrister, judicial officer, or personal injuries legal practitioner, all allies are welcome.
How Can You Get Involved?
Pride in Law is managed by a national board of directors. Each state is run by an executive committee appointed every second year to run over the course of two financial years. Pride in Law is a non-political group, aimed at linking the LGBTIQ+ legal community and their allies.
Information on all monthly socials and larger events are on our website (www.prideinlaw.org).
Come along and get involved in building a more diverse and inclusive legal profession!
