OutLaw is an affinity group for LGBTQ+ students and allies at Duke University School of Law.  Our goals are:

1) Advancing the professional careers of our members;

2) Building our community within and outside the law school;

3) Increasing LGBTQ+ representation at the law school; and

4) Promoting the study of legal issues affecting LGBTQ+ communities.

This semester, our programming has included networking programs with Latham & Watkins, Simpson Thacher, Gibson Dunn, White & Case, and Morgan Lewis. We also hosted lunch panels on Big Law, LGBTQ+ Bias in Jury Deliberations, Sex Work Decriminalization, and Gender in Sport. Our social events with other Duke graduate schools provided a way for law students to socialize outside our Duke Law community, as well as a much-needed means of blowing off steam for 1Ls.
