ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The Midwest LGBTQ Law Conference is an annual gathering of students, faculty, practitioners, and community members from the Midwest at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law.
Our goals are to present a diverse array of speakers from inside and outside the traditional legal community and facilitate real discussion about the status of LGBTQ rights.
The conference is free, open to members of the public, and provides five free MCLE credits.
All events will take place in Anheuser-Busch (AB) Hall unless otherwise indicated.
