The Joyce Wischnia one. Litigation, lawyers and legal advocacy to fight discriminations

Billie Jean Room, 10th floor

The L word (law, of course!) is fundamental to defend the rights of LBQ women and activists. Legal means can be an effective way to fight discrimination, make our voice heard and mobilise our communities.

Our lesbian geniuses, lawyers and human rights advocates, will discuss legal advocacy and strategic litigation from different countries, jurisdictions and fields of law. They will tell their experiences, share pro-tips and insights and explain how to use legal tools to defend human rights in court and improve the standards collaborating with legislators and international organisations.
