The National LGBT Bar Association’s Lavender Law® Conference

The National LGBT Bar Association’s Lavender Law® Conference

Speaking Engagement

Each year, the National LGBT Bar Association's Lavender Law® Conference provides a challenging and rewarding learning experience for our attendees and presenters. To cater to our highly diverse demographic of practitioners, legal scholars, members of the judiciary and law students, the latter of whom make up half of the conference attendees, both introductory and advanced content will be presented.

WilmerHale Senior Associate Adriel Cepeda Derieux will be speaking on "Constitutional Rights in US Territories." More than 4 million people live in America's territories. Yet, for over a century, the Supreme Court has not fully answered one question: What are the constitutional rights of the people living in the US territories? Recent legal battles have cast a spotlight on how unsettled the rights of people living in the territories continue to be. Panelists in this workshop, all counsel for parties or amici in territorial cases, will discuss these legal battles and share some insight on the legal framework affecting the rights of people in the US territories.
