LGBT Advisory Board

On Sept. 26, 2009, a group of dedicated alumni, friends, and students came together at the Law School to form the Maurer School of Law LGBT Advisory Board. Over the next several months, the leadership committee will work to finalize the board and set forth a plan for full board implementation.
