Villanova Law, located just 15 miles outside vibrant downtown Philadelphia, is a welcoming and supportive community for LGBT students. Organizations, such as OUTlaw and the Inclusiveness Committee, provide opportunities for programs, networking, social events, and dialogue. We have enrolled transgender and gender nonconforming students; the Law School features unisex facilities too. Committed to social justice and the public interest, our clinics—including our Refugee & Asylum Clinic—often advocate for LGBT individuals. We also offer an externship with the Mazzoni Center (dedicated to meeting the unique health and wellness needs of the LGBTQ communities in Philadelphia).
