NLG Convention Report

At the NLG National Convention on October 13, 2001, the LGBT Committee presented a panel on transgender employment issues, and our Thomas Steel Summer Law Student Intern, Murray Scheel, presented protocols for transgender people in the criminal justice system. Phyllis Frye, attorney from Houston, TX, spoke on both prison and employment issues.  

 

Ms. Frye has a website that includes a law review article on Employment Law for Transgenders.  http://transgenderlegal.com

 

The jail protocols, as well as a Know Your Rights pamphlet for transgendered people will be made available on the Guild’s website as soon as they are finalized.
