Shine Lawyers proudly hosted this historic event in Brisbane earlier this month.
The LGBT Family Law Institute Meeting - a first in Australia, was a two-day event. The seminar was also a first outside of the United States and the United Kingdom of the LGBT Family Law Institute - a joint venture of the US National LGBT Bar Association, and the US National Center for Lesbian Rights. The NCLR has been a prime litigator in many of the country’s fights for equal rights in recent years, including the Supreme Court decision that allowed equal marriage throughout the United States.
This meeting brought together experienced family law practitioners from across the country as well as international delegates who act and advocate for LGBT clients. The event provided a platform to share collective wisdom and discuss cutting edge legal strategies for representing members of the LGBT community; topics discussed included children's matters, marriage, divorce, child support, domestic violence, adoption, and all topics pertinent to family law.
As a firm that values equality and justice above all, Shine Lawyers were privileged to support the work these lawyers are doing for the disenfranchised LGBT community.
