The presentation will present a historical review of the barriers that have been in place to disallow LGBT persons from practicing as attorneys in Florida, the cases that triggered a change in the view of this issue by the Florida Supreme Court, and the genesis of the development of current rules of professional conduct and judicial canons that deal with the treatment of LGBT persons in Florida courts. The presentation will also address current laws dealing with LGBT discrimination in the court workplace, as well as the relationship of this issue to the current rules of professional conduct and judicial canons.
