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.
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.
