Welcome to the website* of Outlaw, Georgetown University Law Center’s LGBTQIA** student group.
We are Outlaw.
We are growing. We are the largest student group of our kind in the DC Area and our membership continues to grow.
We are advocates. Our members lobby, campaign, and work or intern at advocacy organizations to advance LGBTQI concerns.
We are educators. We strive to educate the Georgetown Law community about LGBTQI issues through panels, professor-led discussions, and full symposiums.
We have community. We strive to create a welcoming environment for LGBTQIA students at Georgetown Law by hosting social events like nights out, dinners, and receptions.
We have history. We are one of the first LGBT student groups in the country to be officially recognized by a Catholic University and we’ve been around for over 25 years.
We have resources. Over the past year alone we have designed a website, started an alumni database, and created an LGBTQIA job and scholarship guide.
We have diversity. Our members represent the range of the LGBTQI movement and come from a variety of religious, socio-economic, and racial and ethnic backgrounds. Our members graduate and their careers span the legal spectrum--everything from government, to private law, to public interest work, and more.
We have plans. We are an organization committed to becoming a leader in the LGBTQ student community not only in Washington DC, but beyond.
We have allies. We partner with the main campus LGBTQ Resource Center and other LGBTQ law student groups in the DC area to host networking events, engage in advocacy, and share resources.
We are you. The membership is the driving force behind all of our efforts. If you are a student or faculty member at Georgetown Law, please request to join our organization through Orgsync and become a part of the work we do.
