TGEU is thrilled to announce its 6th Seminar for Legal Practitioners, taking place 21-22 September 2020. Practitioners from across Europe will come together to share their experience of litigating cases before national and international courts, identify and analyse existing gaps in the legal protection of trans people, and discuss how these gaps can be closed through strategic litigation. The seminar will provide an opportunity to share information regarding relevant developments in the area of trans rights.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, this year’s seminar will take place in a virtual environment, which allows us to admit more participants than in previous years. We are aware of the growing “webinar fatigue” and are working hard to create an online seminar that is interesting, worthwhile, and includes sufficient breaks for networking, side chats, and coffee/tea.

The seminar is relevant to practicing lawyers who represent trans claimants before national and/or regional courts in Europe. Applicants from previous TGEU legal seminars are also welcome. Like in the last year, we want to focus the content of the seminar on the interests and needs of participants.

Potential participants are asked to complete an online application form setting out their experience and motivation for attending.

Applications will be accepted until 31 August 2020.
