Estate Planning for Equality a success for LGBT couples

On Saturday, October 25th, the North Carolina Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, in conjunction with the Campaign for Southern Equality and OUTLAW held an estate planning documents drafting event at Wake Forest University School of Law.  Close to 50 LGBT individuals received their documents for free, and over 25 lawyers, law students and paralegals helped with the project.  It was the first of its kind, and there will be more to follow.  I enjoyed helping this group, a group that has been and continues to be discriminated against.

  1. It seems like there have been a lot of attorneys involved with this. It is interesting to see groups still fighting for equal rights in this day and age. It is good to see some positive change happening lately.
