The objective of the School of Law OUTLaw chapter is to promote the recognition and raise awareness of gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgendered (LGBT) issues in the legal community. OUTLAW is dedicated to promoting diversity and tolerance of LGBT individuals both within the law school and the Philadelphia area as a whole. We strive to foster a sense of unity and cohesion within the law school LGBT community, their friends and supporters as well as to promote awareness of LGBT legal issues. Additionally, support and encouragement of LGBT law students is a critical aspect of our mission through which we strive to address the underrepresentation of out LGBT practitioners in the legal community. We also maintain contacts with LGBT organizations within neighboring law schools as well as the LGBT legal organizations of the greater Philadelphia area such as GALLOP, Mazzoni Center, and the AIDS Law Project Pennsylvania.
