What We Do

New England Law OUTLaws promotes spirit and unity among law students who are members and allies of the LGBTQ community. We provide opportunities for LGBTQ law students and LGBTQ allied law students to meet in an academic setting and explore opportunities in the Boston professional legal setting. We discuss and TAKE ACTION on questions of law that impact the LGBTQ community and we demonstrate the presence of the community in our law school. OUTLaws also promotes reforms for the purpose of eliminating discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression, and we aim to assure fair and just treatment of members of the LGBTQ community under the law.

Each academic year, OUTLaws sponsors many events that support causes and raise awareness of issues directly related to the LGBTQ community and its allies. Additionally, the student association works directly with the Massachusetts LGBTQ Bar Association in promoting educational, networking, and volunteering opportunities to law students throughout the Boston metropolitan area. The following list includes just a sample of the events that we offer to the law school community and beyond:
