Legal Seminar on Transgender Law

On Friday October 12th 2012 the Scottish Transgender Alliance, supported by the Law Society of Scotland, held Scotland’s first legal seminar on transgender law at the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Professional Legal Studies.

Over 40 people attended from a range of law firms and public and voluntary sector organisations, and the majority of delegates were solicitors. Speakers presented on various human rights and equality issues currently affecting trans people, the type of legal advice trans clients are likely to seek, and how providers of legal advice can make their services as trans inclusive as possible.

We received extremely positive feedback about the seminar and began to build up a network of solicitors and advisors with an understanding of the needs of trans clients.
