The goal of ALICE is to connect LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Transsexual and Intersex) lawyers, junior lawyers and law students within Germany and abroad. ALICE also acts as a mutual learning platform that aims towards the continued improvement and expansion of LGBTI rights. Therefore we initiated the ALICE Summit and Network.
The ALICE Network is an international coalition of LGBTI students, and lawyers that meets on a regular basis at events throughout Germany. These events focus not only on the LGBTI legal community but also on the role of its straight allies*. Through these events, the Network aims to lend LGBTI lawyers greater visibility in the working world.
*Someone who may not self-identify as LGBTI, but who supports and stands up for the rights of the LGBTI community.
