OUTLaw is a social and political organization dedicated to supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) law students at ASU. Our organization plans networking events with LGBT and LGBT-friendly attorneys and coordinates events addressing concerns of LGBT students in the job application process. OUTLaw also seeks to raise visibility of LGBT issues within the law school, the university at large, and the greater Phoenix legal community.
OUTLaw involves law students in the national LGBT movement by encouraging political activism (writing/calling senators and representatives in support of or to voice concern about current legislation), supporting discussions of social change (such as participating in National Coming Out Day and the Day of Silence), and keeping students apprised of major case decisions and changes in laws affecting LGBT individuals. We are an organization open to anyone wishing to discuss issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, and while we seek to provide a safe space, we welcome and encourage allies to participate.
