OutLaw is an inclusive community for LGBTQA students and their allies meant to foster a safe and welcoming environment for those people pursuing legal degrees at Penn State Law.  OutLaw strives to create an educational forum for students to embrace acceptance and inclusion despite our diverse backgrounds. Each year we seek to find new ways to inform group members and the student legal body about the legal issues faced by LGBTQA individuals and lawyers.  Alongside group outings and fund raisers, including the annual Drag Show, OutLaw works to connect members, identifiers and allies alike, with employers through Lavender Law.
