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 welcomes all members of the LGBTQ community and its allies. Throughout the school year we host academic and social events, participate in pro bono legal clinics and other community outreach work, and notify our members about diversity scholarships and professional opportunities.
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.
OUTLaw is always interested in partnering with other organizations that align with our goals. Please contact us with any questions or suggestions.
