NCTE created the Trans Legal Services Network to ensure that every transgender person has access to assistance navigating the complicated name and gender change process and any other legal issues they may face. The Network brings together over 80 organizations serving trans communities to share advice, technical support and legal resources, helping member organizations build capacity and expand their services. Through regular phone conferences, listserv conversations, and individualized support the Network serves to improve and expand name and gender change services and other legal services available to trans people across the country. The Trans Legal Services Advisory Council is made up of law firms dedicated to providing legal support for the Network.
Trans Legal Services Network members represent over 80 organizations across the country dedicated to providing name and gender change services or other legal services for trans people in their areas.
