The first annual LGBTI legal and regulatory conference is being held on 25 and 26 May in Melbourne. I will be speaking there-  about IVF reproductive treatment and stored genetic materials. Who is going to join me?

The topics covered are:

  • intersex- misconceptions and surgical interventions
  • discrimination and bullying in schools
  • discrimination issues in the workplace
  • end of life planning
  • relationship breakdown from a family law perspective
  • same sex domestic violence
  • adoption rights
  • international surrogacy and parenting orders- and finally my topic: TAHDAH!:
  • IVF reproductive treatment and stored genetic materials
The chair on day one is Anna Brown, from the Human Rights Law Centre, who has been leading the campaign for equal marriage, and on day two is Professor Nathan Mushin, retired Family Court judge.

There are top quality speakers, including:
  •  William Keogh
  • Kristen Walker QC
