TGEU is pleased to invite applications from lawyers wishing to attend its fourth legal practitioners’ seminar on 07 – 08 September 2017, in Berlin, Germany.
Practitioners from across Europe will come together to share their experience of litigating cases before national and international courts, identify and analyze existing gaps in the legal protection of trans people and discuss how these gaps can be closed through strategic litigation. The seminar will also provide an opportunity to share information regarding relevant legal and non-legal developments in the area of trans rights. This year’s seminar will focus on discrimination of trans people in access to goods & services and employment, including intersectional perspectives involving more than one discrimination ground. Other relevant issues will be determined based on the interests and need of applicants.
The seminar is relevant to practicing lawyers specialized in discrimination-law working at the national level across Europe, interested or experienced in supporting trans claimants, as well as to lawyers with experience of litigating on trans issues more broadly before national and/or regional courts. Applications from participants in previous TGEU legal practitioners’ seminars are welcome, too.
Places at the seminar are limited and potential participants are asked to complete an online application form setting out their experience and motivation for attending.
Applications will be accepted until 28 July 2017.
TGEU will cover accommodation and travelling costs associated with attending the seminar. Information regarding the venue and program will be provided at a later date. Successful applicants will be asked to arrange their travel to Berlin so that they arrive on 06 September and depart not earlier than 9 September.
