Live date: 
Friday, January 29, 2021 - 10:00am
This session focuses on the representation of clients who belong to the LGBTQIA community. Topic points include who are members of that community, why it is important in the context of the lawyer-client relationship and more specifically civil commitment, and what should you do—and not do—when your client is LGBTQIA.
