Outlaws goals are to provide support for and educate the Yale Law School community and beyond about legal issues affecting LGBTQ persons as well as to provide a community for LGBTQ-identified people within YLS.

graduate and professional students
SHARE is available to undergraduate, graduate and professional school students at Yale who are dealing with sexual misconduct of any kind. Students turn to us with a variety of concerns, large and small, and we assist in whatever way we can. Sometimes we have a one-time phone consultation. More often, that first phone call leads to meeting in person, exploring options for response, and working to make sure that the caller gets whatever ongoing assistance she or he needs.
Yale strives to be a community free of sexual misconduct, by promoting the essential values of respect and responsibility, providing education, and working with students, faculty, and staff — a community that is safe and supportive for all. Yale takes all complaints and accusations of sexual misconduct seriously.
