Member Benefits

Community Support

Through its connections with many non-profit organizations in the LGBT community, LGBT Bar LA provides its members with a variety of ways to contribute to and support key organizations, charities, political initiatives and causes to help our community succeed and present the diverse face of the LGBT legal community.

Discounts to Events

Members receive special discounts to all LGBT Bar LA events—including social events and continuing education. These discounts can easily surpass the cost of joining LGBT Bar LA.

Excursions & Trips

Periodically throughout the year, LGBT Bar LA provides structured opportunities for members and their guests to spend more time getting to know each other on casual trips or outings, such as our Theatre Party Nights, Law Student events, Dodger Games and picnic evenings at the Hollywood Bowl.

Monthly Meetings

On the second Tuesday of every month, LGBT Bar LA holds its monthly Board of Governors meeting, with interested members, and periodic guest speakers. Members are encouraged to attend and discover the inner-workings of LGBT Bar LA, its Executive Committee and other LGBT Bar LA Volunteer Committees that keep the organization moving and make the membership so interesting and rewarding.

Law Student Mentorship Program

The William J. Clayton Mentorship Program was founded in 2002, and establishes mentor/mentee relationships between LGBT Bar LA member attorneys and area law students. Mentors provide advice, counsel, and guidance to law students, contributing to the development of a strong LGBT legal community.




The periodic e-newsletters reminds members of all upcoming events. It is an opportunity for members to find out about events of interest to the LGBT legal community, such as events hosted by the Multicultural Bar Alliance’s 17 minority bar associations (of which LGBT Bar LA is a member). From time to time, breaking news of local political or legal significance is also included for our members.


LGBT Bar LA provides many different opportunities for its members to meet, socialize, do business and connect with other like-minded community members and friends of the LGBT community. Most events and activities are open to members, and to non-members who sometimes pay an additional 'guest' fee to attend. Many members have struck up new friendships and valuable business and personal relationships through LGBT Bar LA functions and activities.

Annual Dinner and Awards Gala

As LGBT Bar LA’s largest annual event, this gala is attended by attorneys, judges, students, leaders in the legal and LGBT community, and government officials. LGBT Bar LA presents annual awards to outstanding individuals and community service organizations, provides annual scholarships to law students, and features speakers of national renown.

Event Mixers

LGBT Bar LA sponsors after-work happy hour mixers, often held jointly with other LGBT community organization, providing a relaxed atmosphere for getting to know members and their guests, exchanging business cards, and meeting new people. Some of LGBT Bar LA’s mixers have been co-sponsored by SCLMA (Southern California Lambda Medical Association), the Trevor Project, Lambda Legal, Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, The Multicultural Bar Alliance, and many other interesting groups and organizations.
