Law Student Liaisons

LGBT Bar NY's Law Student Liaisons serve on the Boards of Directors for the Association and Foundation (collectively, the “Board”).
This is an unpaid, volunteer opportunity open to any person who attends and is in good standing at a law school accredited by the American Bar Association. Law Student Liaisons are non-voting members of the Board who are uniquely poised to bring issues affecting current students and recent graduates to the attention of the organization.

Appointed Liaisons can expect to learn in significant detail about the daily operation of a non-profit organization, to develop professional contacts within the local LGBTIA+ legal community, and to work closely with the organization's Officers, Legal Director, Executive Director, and Board on a wide range of LGBT Bar NY's programs and initiatives.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Attend LGBT Bar NY monthly Board meetings and networking events.
  • Serve as an ambassador for LGBT Bar NY at your law school.
  • Assist in fundraising and development, such as volunteering at LGBT Bar NY's key annual fundraiser.
  • Facilitate communications between JD/LLM students and LGBT Bar NY regarding initiatives and programming conducted by LGBT Bar NY.
  • Uphold ethical and fiduciary duties as appropriate.


  • Hybrid—New York City and Remote
