The American Bar Association has released a comprehensive guide that addresses the legal issues and obstacles faced by transgender people.
Written by transgender lawyer Ally Windsor Howell, the book, titled Transgender Persons and the Law, tackles such issues as housing, health care, employment, and military service.
By citing specific laws and court cases, it aims to provide both lawyers and transgender people with the information and tools required to navigate these fields.
Transgender Persons and the Law also includes a supplemental DVD that contains state-specific forms required to legally change names and birth certificates throughout the United States.
The 313-page book has been hailed as “the definitive treatise for legal issues that have specific application to transgender persons throughout the United States” by Robert O’Toole, cochair of the transgender subcommittee of the New York State Bar Association.
