On Lawyer2Lawyer this Week: Transgender Rights and Bathroom Bills


With its “bathroom law,” North Carolina has become ground zero for a debate that is playing out in a number of states involving the transgender community, equal rights and equal access to public accommodations. North Carolina’s controversial law bans people from using bathrooms that don’t match the sex indicated on their birth certificates, which opponents argue is discriminatory toward the transgender community.

This week on the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer, we consider this issue with three guests:

  • Ilona Turner, legal director of the Transgender Law Center.
  • Andrew Beckwith , president of the Massachusetts Family Institute.
  • Katie Eyer, associate professor at Rutgers Law School and an expert in anti-discrimination law.
