RUTGERS LESBIAN GAY BISEXUAL TRANSGENDER CAUCUS
RU-N Law School Student Organization
The Rutgers Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Caucus was organized in 1976. Its main objectives are to represent the interests of the gay and lesbian students of the school; to encourage the study of law affecting gay and lesbian people; to educate the general school community on important issues relating to the rights of gays and lesbians; and to provide information, leadership, encouragement, and debate on the important issues affecting gays and lesbians, such as the right to marry and divorce, the right to privacy, the right to be free from employment and public accommodations discrimination, the right to child custody, and criminal law reform. The organization coordinates efforts with all schools in the metropolitan area and with national professional organizations such as Lesbians in Law and others.
