Welcome to OUTLaw!
OUTLaw is a community for LGBT+ law students and their allies at W&L Law. Our mission is to unite LGBT+ law students and allies at W&L Law in efforts to promote diversity, inclusion, intersectionality, and support for LGBT+ issues. We welcome participation and support from people of all different identities, viewpoints, and backgrounds who support the dignity and equality of LGBT+ individuals.
We plan to further our mission by sponsoring social and educational events at W&L Law, such as bringing in speakers to talk about LGBT+ law-related issues. We will also send OUTLaw members to LGBT+ events and conferences outside the law school that focus on LGBT+ related issues and resources. For example, this past summer, OUTLaw representatives attended the LGBT Bar's Lavender Law Conference and Job Fair in Chicago. Additionally, we also hope to connect current students with W&L alumni who identify as LGBT+ or are allies.
