Washburn Law’s Gay-Straight Legal Alliance promotes awareness and education regarding the legal system’s treatment of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and gender-variant people. Its members are committed to building a safe and tolerant society that respects diversity and offers gays, lesbians, bisexual, and gender-variant people equal protection under the law. The group also serves as a support system. The meetings are open to all law students who believe in equal rights and fair treatment.

Additional Information

Washburn Law provides a welcoming atmosphere for students who identify as LGBT. We encourage applicants to discuss their sexual orientation or sexual identity in their application materials. The admission staff is a Safe Zone, and Safe Zone Ally trainings are conducted throughout the year. Scholarship-eligible students can be selected for a scholarship that specifically rewards their LGBT advocacy. One of our professors was recently cited for her amicus brief in the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court case. The city of Topeka hosts an annual Pride Week, and our city is home to the Equality House, among other points of pride.
