UP OUTLaws is now accepting submissions for the Philippine Journal of Law and Gender, which is envisioned to be the first student-edited, legal and academic journal in the Philippines that will touch on the interface between law, gender and sexuality. The deadline for submission for the first issue is on November 30; and submissions may be in the form of legal articles, feature articles, essays, book reviews, case notes and other works germane to the objective of the journal.
UP OUTLaws is the first gender cause-oriented organization in the UP College of Law. Composed of members and allies of the LGBT+ community, it envisions itself as a society of legal advocates collectively aspiring for a nation that upholds the principles of gender equality and social justice, and a country that is imbued with love, compassion and respect for the LGBT+ community.
In line with its commitment of becoming catalysts of social change and advocating for just and fair laws and policies, UP OUTLaws conducts activities including educational discussions, publication of the first ever law journal focused on gender, conduct of pride week, and other workshops.
The present faculty adviser of UP OUTLaws is Family Law and Intellectual Property lawyer, Atty. Ma. Gabriella Roldan-Concepcion.
