The National LGBT Bar Association today released a list of the Best Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Lawyers under the Age of 40. The LGBT Bar established this award to recognize young LGBT legal professionals who have distinguished themselves in their field and demonstrated a profound commitment to LGBT equality.
“We are incredibly proud of these forty individuals,” said D’Arcy Kemnitz, Executive Director of the National LGBT Bar Association. “Together, they represent the best and brightest young minds in the LGBT legal community.”
This year’s awardees include partners and associates from both large and small law firms, attorneys working at non-profit organizations and one of the largest corporations in the U.S. (Target Corporation), legal scholars, government attorneys and even a State Senator.
“The LGBT community is very diverse and LGBT attorneys can be found in every corner of the legal profession,” said Kemnitz. “It makes perfect sense then that our members would be among the leaders shaping the future of the legal profession.”
The award recipients will be recognized at the Lavender Law Conference being held at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel on August 26, 2010. The National LGBT Bar Association is a national association of lawyers, judges and other legal professionals, law students, activists, and affiliated lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender legal organizations. The association promotes justice in and through the legal profession for the LGBT community in all its diversity.
