Washington University School of Law Women
Women at Washington University occupy leadership roles throughout the school. Women students take on important roles in all our student organizations including the Student Bar Association and the Public Service Advisory Board. There are also many organizations oriented toward women and gender issues. For example, the Women’s Law Caucus focuses on supporting women in law school and the profession.
Women’s Law Caucus
The Women’s Law Caucus, founded in 1972, strives to emphasize the development and achievements of women in the field of law, while fostering relationships among law students, faculty and community at large. One of the largest and most active student-run organizations in the Law School, the WLC seeks to educate students about issues facing women in the legal field, and inspire members to overcome gender-based barriers.
OUTLAW is an educational, political, and social alliance of law students interested in working with Washington University and the surrounding community towards fostering and maintaining an environment that is supportive, positive, and safe for individuals of sexual and gender diversity. In striving for a greater understanding of sexuality and gender issues at the law school and within the affiliated communities, OUTLAW aims at addressing the legal issues associated with sexual and gender diversity and provides resources and support for social activism.
Law Students for Reproductive Justice (Law Students for Choice)
We started Law Students for Choice because we believe that individuals, not governments, have the right to make decisions about their reproductive health. Today, only a few law schools offer comprehensive education in reproductive rights law and opportunities for professional training are scarce. Together, we can change this situation and become a powerful, educated force that defends and expands reproductive rights in the United States and around the world.
American Constitution Society
ACS is committed to fostering a progressive vision of the law on issues such as access to courts; anti-discrimination and affirmative action; civil liberties; consumer rights; criminal justice; disability rights; freedom of speech; gay rights; international human rights; immigration; labor law; open government; privacy; protection of health, safety and the environment; and women's rights and reproductive choice.
