Additional Information

All students are able to use their preferred name and pronoun (or no pronoun) on their identification cards, class roster, email addresses, mailings, and diplomas. We have unisex facilities and an active LGBT organization called the OUTLaws. We sponsor activities and symposiums that address LGBT concerns and we have openly gay and lesbian faculty who are very accessible. Students have access to all of the senior administrators, including the president and dean of the law school, to address their concerns. We have successfully enrolled transgender students (this knowledge is based on those students who have made the school aware of their status). Overall, our law school reflects the LGBT climate of New York City, which is one of the most progressive LGBT regions in the United States.
