International Lesbian and Gay Law Association Announces First Meeting
 

We are pleased to announce the formation of the International Lesbian and Gay Law Association.  A number of you will have attended the excellent Kings College Conference in London last year organized by Robert Wintemute.  During that conference, British, Israeli and Canadian lawyers got together to establish this new association with R. Douglas Elliott of Toronto as President.

Our first meeting will be held this year at the same time although separate from the International Bar Association conference.  Our meeting is scheduled on Saturday September 16, 2000 at the COC in Amsterdam which is located at Rozenstraat 14, 1016 NX Amsterdam.

The meeting is scheduled to commence at 9:00 AM and end around 5:00 PM.  I would like to welcome all to attend.

You know the importance of maintaining a strong vibrant voice to advance equality and justice for gays and lesbians.  We believe that this new organization can make an important contribution to that cause.

I hope to see everyone there.

Very truly yours,

R. Douglas Elliott
President
