Columbia Law School Creates Country's First Sexuality, Gender Law Clinic

From the Columbia News, 4/7/2006:

"Columbia Law School is creating the nation's first clinical
program in sexuality and gender law to provide students
with cutting-edge training in impact litigation, legislative
work and community advocacy...The clinic will be directed
by Professor Suzanne B. Goldberg, formerly of Rutgers
Law School's Women's Rights Litigation Clinic and Lambda
Legal Defense. Goldberg was co-counsel in the Lawrence v.
Texas and Romer v. Evans cases and co-authored Strangers
to the Law: Gay People on Trial, which recounts the legal
challenge to Colorado's anti-gay constitutional amendment
in the Romer case."
