Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Clients: A Lawyer's Guide
by Joan M. Burda

Lending Library Number: 95

NOTE: Due to licensing restrictions, the CD that accompanies this book may not be available for loan.

This book provides an introduction to lawyers and their clients to the legal landscape as it relates to lesbian, gay, and transgender (LGT) persons today and provides the opportunity to look at issues from the perspectives of those persons. In addition to case law, statutes, and a discussion of legal issues, this book also introduces the reader to people who make up the lesbian, gay, and transgender community and their common issues. It will assist you in developing new ideas of what is possible in your jurisdiction, and identify the legal issues to be successfully challenged. Some of the topics covered include:

  • LGT relationships
  • Children
  • Adoption
  • Parenting rights
  • LGT students and schools
  • LGT elders
  • Estate planning
  • Immigration

The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM that includes checklists, forms, sample agreements, and web site links to state-specific resources.
