The American Bar Association has released a 313-page guide to help both transgender people and lawyers navigate the U.S. legal system.

It was written by transgender lawyer Ally Windsor Howell and addresses the legal issues and obstacles faced by transgender people. The book titles Transgender Persons and the Law, tackles issues such as housing, health care, employment, and military service.

By citing specific laws and court cases, it aims to provide both lawyers and transgender people with the information and tools required to navigate these fields.

The treatise, priced at $129.95, is available on ABA’s website. Those seeking information on transgender rights may also consult Lambda Legal’s free online resource, “Know Your Rights.”

  1. Not living in the USA, this is really not of much use to me but it does set a precedent that might be useful in applying pressure for some action in Australia and the rest of the world so i welcome this move wholeheartedly and will reblog to spread the word. Thanks Kira for posting.

    1. I have readers from all over the world, though the majority of my daily views are from the US. I know not everyone is going to be interested in every post, so I try to cover as many subjects as I can throughout the week.
      Thank you for reblogging, I really appreciate it. 🙂

      1. We are all fighting the same battles no matter which part of the world we live in so the more we can stick together, support one another and spread the word the better. You manage to pick up many more transgender related publications than i do so i appreciate your efforts in sharing them.

  2. Reblogged this on Roxie Fox's Blog and commented:

  3. We shouldn’t need special laws. All people are equal.! I’ve been away working in Ottawa, so I’m not blogging as much. 4 weeks left to go, and I’ll be able to visit more often. ((Hugs))
