Moving Beyond Bias: How To Ensure Access to Justice for LGBT People

Find Your State

Know the laws in your state that protect LGBT people and people living with HIV.
A Training Curriculum Prepared by Lambda Legal’s Fair Courts Project for Judges, Attorneys and Other Legal Professionals

This curriculum was created to provide a model for educating judges, attorneys and other legal professionals about sexual orientation, gender identity and the needs of LGBT people in the legal system. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the accompanying PowerPoint presentation. Systemic bias and discrimination impede access to justice in the courts for LGBT people and people living with HIV; this is especially true for transgender people, people of color and others with multiple marginalized identities. Such biases are greatly reduced in the face of information about the lives of LGBT people.
