A Transition in the Law: Transgender Discrimination

Published:  April 21, 2017

On April 21, 2017, the Royal attorneys presented on how to navigate through the legal landscape of an evolving and challenging area of discrimination law.

Discrimination based on transgender status or gender identity is a developing area of the law. There has been a lot of debate on the local, state, and national level over access to bathrooms for transgender individuals. As the public debates this issue, legislators, administrative agencies, and courts are shaping the law that prohibits gender discrimination, including discrimination against transgender individuals. 

This event was hosted by the Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce.
