OUTLaws provides a forum for discussing gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender legal issues and provides a safe place to socialize, support one another and work together for success. Everyone associated with Willamette University College of Law is invited to participate in OUTLaws. However, participants are expected to respect the basic tenets of the organization which is that all gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people should receive the same basic rights accorded heterosexuals and that all people should be judged by their individual character, not their sexual orientation.
