In this seminar, students explore the role of an attorney in advocating on behalf of transgender people, whether the community as a whole or individual members. Students can expect to gain a working knowledge of the laws and legal systems that often affect transgender people. These include the laws around name and gender marker changes; anti-discrimination law in employment, housing, education, and public accommodations; and access to health care including transition-related care. Students can also expect to examine the hyper criminalization of transgender people, particularly transgender people of color, and the resulting rates of incarceration as well as the disproportionate violence transgender people face in prison. Similarly, students can expect to examine the ways in which our immigration system detains and harms transgender immigrants who come to the United States often fleeing violence in their countries of origin.

This course will have a series of short papers and a final paper.
