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 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 lesbian, gay and bisexual law students at UT Law.
Today, our goal is to provide support for this community and a voice for LGBTQ concerns. We seek to educate the Law School community by increasing LGBTQ visibility and raising awareness of LGBTQ issues.
