Family Law and the 2SLGBTQ+ Community

Date: Thursday, August 19, 2021

Time: 12:00pm – 1:00pm (Atlantic Time)

Topic: Family Law and the 2SLGBTQ+ Community

Lawyers have been grappling with family law issues faced by their 2SLGBTQ+ clients for years – individual and systemic discrimination against 2SLGBTQ+ parents, including non-biological parents and families with more than two parents, issues related to adoption, surrogacy, and donor-assisted conception, and more. 

Panellists will review recent progress made in changing and challenging norms, and discuss how family law can be made more inclusive.

Speakers: Anastacia Merrigan (Associate, Hicks LeMoine Law);  Terrance G. Sheppard (Partner, BOYNECLARKE LLP.)
