OUTlaw is a student organization dedicated to equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (“GLBT”) persons both at the University of Mississippi School of Law and in society at large. OUTlaw serves its population by providing support and a forum for the discussion of legal or political issues affecting GLBT individuals. It also serves an important social function: it allows students, faculty and staff at the law school to establish friendships and identify other students, faculty and staff with a commitment to the GLBT community. Of note, OUTlaw was successful in developing the first GLBT Law Alumni chapter in the Southeastern Conference.
