TGEU are pleased to invite applications from lawyers wishing to attend its third legal practitioners’ seminar on 8-9 September 2016, in Athens, Greece.

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 the treatment of and claims brought on behalf of trans asylum-seekers, in addition to other relevant issues that will be determined based on the interest and need of applicants.

The seminar is relevant to practicing lawyers specialized in refugee law working at the national level across Europe, interested or experienced in supporting trans asylum seekers, 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 20 June 2016.

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 Athens so that they arrive on 7 September and depart not earlier than 9 September 3:30 pm.
