Maureen Holland, a member of Cozen O'Connor’s Institutional Response Group, has been recognized by the LGBT Bar as one of the 40 Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40. Each year, the LGBT Bar recognizes LGBTQ+ legal professionals under the age of 40 who have distinguished themselves in their field and have demonstrated a profound commitment to LGBTQ+ equality. Awardees are recognized each year at our Lavender Law® Conference and Career Fair.
Holland’s practice is focused on Title IX and civil rights investigations. Institutions frequently call upon Holland to investigate reports of sexual assault, harassment, stalking, interpersonal violence, discrimination, retaliation, and other forms of prohibited conduct under Title IX, the Clery Act, and other state and federal laws. Holland has served as Interim Title IX Coordinator at Baylor University, Interim Director of Investigations at a large state university, and is a third-party equity consultant for Michigan State University. She regularly delivers training on federal compliance and effective practices for Title IX coordinators, investigators, and decision-makers.
About LGBT Bar
The LGBT Bar was founded over 30 years ago by a small group of family law practitioners at the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis. In 1987, the idea of creating a gay and lesbian bar association was formally introduced at the Lesbian & Gay March on Washington. The first Lavender Law® Conference took place the following year at the Golden Gate University in San Francisco. In 1989, at the American Bar Association’s Mid-Year meeting, bylaws were presented, and a nonprofit board of directors was formalized.
