In the weeks following the Supreme Court's Prop 8 and DOMA decisions, BALIF and our local network of bar associations and legal organizations have been busy providing quality programs that explore the legal, political, and personal implications for the LGBT community.
We were fortunate to partner this July with the American Constitution Society and the BASF's LGBT Equality Committee, enjoying two excellent panels featuring attorneys who are on the front lines of this march for equality. And we have been inspired by the stories from Kristin Perry and Sandra Stier, the plaintiffs in Hollingsworth v. Perry, about the challenges they faced along the way and their newfound, sometimes blissfully mundane, joys of being legally married.
We have even more great programming coming up this month. This Thursday, July 25, we have a seminar for those planning to walk down the aisle, Prenup is not a Dirty Word: Marrying and Registering with Heart and Smarts, and next Wednesday, July 31, we have a panel co-sponsored with JAMS discussing important family law issues,Implications of DOMA and Prop 8 Rulings: The new frontier in same-sex family law and estate planning.
Please come join us for these two timely and important CLE programs, and stay tuned for more great events in August!
