Attorneys Bruner and Vukelic speak on transgender student rights

Rachel Bruner and Meredith Vukelic, who lead Pearce Durick PLLC’s Education Law Group, were invited to speak at the North Dakota School Boards Association’s Law Seminar on October 24, 2019, on the topic of transgender student rights. As society continues to address issues affecting people who identify as LGBTQ, schools become a place where evolving opinions are explored and tested. In turn, school boards and school staff must balance competing opinions while transgender or gender non-conforming students assert their civil and educational rights at school. Rachel and Meredith enjoyed the opportunity to discuss the current legal landscape surrounding these matters with the several hundred seminar attendees.
