OutLaw Mentoring Program

The University of Chicago OutLaw Mentoring Program pairs first year students with Chicago attorneys to provide support and guidance in navigating the first year of law school while facilitating the development of professional skills and fostering the evolution of career goals. The program encourages the professional development of 1L LGBTQ law students and assists mentees in approaching some of the unique issues that members of the LGBTQ community may confront during law school and at the outset of their legal careers. The OutLaw Mentoring program builds and reinforces a sense of community among first year students and members of the Chicago legal community while enhancing the skills and career prospects of participants. Mentors and mentees are matched based on interests and background in order to provide a mutually enriching experience for both the student and the attorney.
