A recent study estimates that more than 1.4 million Americans identify as transgender, which is more than double the figure from a 2011 survey. Almost 20,000 transgender people—the seventh-highest percentage in the country—live in Oregon. Serving the legal needs of these Oregonians means becoming familiar with new cultural norms, such as new names and pronouns, changes in bathroom identification, and antidiscrimination cases, legislation, and administrative rulings. From gaining knowledge in using basic and respectful terminology relating to transgender individuals to recognizing the legal services needed by the transgender community, our experts provide an understanding and foundation to help lawyers competently serve transgender clients.
