UofT Outlaws Logo


University of Toronto OutLaws is a student group dedicated to fostering a positive environment for 2SLGBTQ+ students at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law. OutLaws serves as a resource for 2SLGBTQ+ students, with a focus on helping each student develop academically, socially and professionally. Involvement is flexible, and confidentiality is always respected. 

Academically, OutLaws organizes a variety of speaker events throughout the school year on current legal issues facing the 2SLGBTQ+ community locally and around the globe. Past events include fireside chats with accomplished lawyers and a panel about the systemic treatment of LQBTQ+ refugees.

Socially, OutLaws provides a busy community calendar, organizing intimate events for group members as well as networking events with other Ontario law schools and graduate programs at U of T.

Professionally, OutLaws serves as a valuable resource for its members, connecting law students with 2SLGBTQ+ alumni and organizing groups of students to attend professional development events.

Most notably, OutLaws facilitates a mentorship program that connects group members with both 2SLGBTQ+ upper-year students and alumni. Any students or alumni interested in the mentorship program can contact us for more info.
