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 and developing legal interests and career goals. The program encourages the professional development of 1L LGBTQ law students and, in particular, assists mentees in approaching the unique issues that members of the LGBTQ community may confront during law school and into 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.
