2012 Dan Bradley Award Winner

Jennifer Levi
2012 Dan Bradley Award Ceremony to be held during the Awards Celebration Lunch on Friday, August 24 at the Lavender Law Conference and Career Fair

Jennifer L. Levi is the director of GLAD's Transgender Rights Project. Jennifer has served as counsel in a number of precedent-setting cases establishing basic rights for transgender people, including: O’Donnabhain v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue which established that medical care relating to gender transition qualifies as a medical deduction for federal income tax purposes; Doe v. Yunits, the first reported decision establishing protections for transgender youth; and Adams v. Bureau of Prisons, which successfully challenged a federal prison policy denying essential medical care to transgender inmates, among many others.

She has also appeared in a number of high profile family law cases arguing the right of same-sex couples to marry, challenging state sodomy laws, and for full parental rights of non-birth parents and has been instrumental in getting transgender-inclusive non-discrimination laws passed in the majority of the New England states. Jennifer has also been at the forefront of many legislative victories, including the enactment of comprehensive non-discrimination protections for transgender people in Massachusetts in 2011.

Jennifer is a law professor at Western New England University. She serves on the Legal Committee of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, and is a founding member of both the Transgender Law & Policy Institute and the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition. Jennifer is a graduate of Wellesley College and the University of Chicago Law School and a former law clerk to Judge Michael Boudin at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

Jennifer co-edited Transgender Family Law: A Guide to Effective Advocacy, the first book to address legal issues facing transgender people in the family law context and provide practitioners the tools to effectively represent transgender clients. 

Jennifer lives in Northampton, Massachusetts with her spouse, Sue Donnelly, and their two children.

Please join the National LGBT Bar Association in thanking Jennifer Levi for all of her hard work on behalf of the LGBT community.
