About Us


OutLaw is an affinity group for LGBTQ and Ally students 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.

Over the last two semesters we have advanced each of these goals in a number of ways.  As part of our fall semester events, we partnered with APALSA and Morgan Lewis for a mock interview program. We also partnered with the American Constitution Society for an event with Judge Todd Hughes of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  This spring, OutLaw partnered with Moore & Van Allen to attend the annual HRC Gala in Charlotte, and hosted a lunch talk on LGBT rights In Latin America.

Please contact current President Bobby Denault if you would like to enquire about any information related to our organization.
