Pride in Law

Brisbane-based Pride in Law is one of the first organisations of its kind in Australia. We spoke to Dean Clifford-Jones, President of Pride in Law, to hear about how the association came to be and what exciting things are planned for the future.

What does your organisation do?

We are a not-for-profit LGBTIQ+ legal networking association based in Brisbane. We are Australia’s first independent legal networking association designed to bring together the LGBTIQ+ legal profession across multiple disciplines.

How did your organisation start?

Pride in Law started and continues as a not-for-profit legal networking association for the LGBTIQ+ community and allies.

How does your organisation contribute to the LGBTIQA+ communities?

Pride in Law is a non-political group, aimed at linking the LGBTIQ+ legal community and their allies. Pride in Law is not exclusive to any single area of legal discipline, which will co-ordinate monthly lawyer-to-lawyer meetings. In addition, Pride in Law holds larger social networking events throughout the year.

What are any exciting things happening in the future for your organisation?

  • Coordinate monthly lawyer-to-lawyer social networking meetings.
  • Collaborate with a wide range of lawyers across multiple disciplines to confront pressing issues involving the LGBTIQ+ community and their allies.
  • Organise scholarly forums to engage lawyers and their allies in current LGBTIQ+ legal debates through social networking events.

Thanks to Dean for answering our questions, and to Pride in Law for the work that they do for the LGBTIQA+ communities.
