Membership in GALLOP is open to all lawyers, law students and other legal professionals who live, practice or attend law school in the metropolitan Philadelphia area, or who are admitted to practice at any bar or court located in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, including the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware bars. GALLOP actively seeks the involvement of all individuals in our community, regardless of age, race, religion, gender, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, political affiliation or sexual orientation.
A number of people have requested information regarding the confidentiality of GALLOP’s mailing list. Neither GALLOP’s mailing list nor the names of individual members are ever disclosed to any organization or individual outside GALLOP’s Board of Directors. On occasion, the Board authorizes mailings from outside organizations to those on GALLOP’s mailing list when the Board determines that such mailings would be of particular interest or concern to GALLOP members. When the Board makes such a determination, an organization delivers stuffed and stamped envelopes to the Board. Board members then apply labels from our mailing list to these envelopes and deliver the envelopes directly to the post office. This system is the result of the GALLOP Board’s commitment to keeping the Philadelphia gay and lesbian legal community informed while maintaining strict confidentiality.
GALLOP relies on your dues dollars
GALLOP relies on your annual membership dues to continue current activities and to offer new programs. Annual membership is on a sliding scale basis, with free membership for law students and attorneys in their first year of practicing law. As a member you will pay reduced admission to many GALLOP events and pay a reduced membership fee to join the National Lesbian and Gay Law Association. Additionally, as GALLOP recently obtained 501(c)(3) status, your dues and other contributions are now tax deductible!
