About OUTLaw

OUTLaw is a social and political student organization dedicated to serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) community at The University of Texas School of Law.

OUTLaw originated as the Lesbian Bisexual Gay Student Association (LBGSA) following the 1996 United States Supreme Court decision¬†Hopwood v. Texas, when a number of minority students at UT Law were mobilizing in order to create a more visible presence at the Law School. The organization’s founders sought to provide a social support network to the queer community at UT Law.
