“Without a doubt, the most fulfilling aspect of being a member of OutLaws has been the community I've found within the organization. Some of my closest friends I have made in law school are fellow OutLaws members, and those who aren't, I met through other student organizations on campus.” 

—Justin A. Norris ’24, President of OutLaws
