Lambda’s email listserv is the primary channel for communicating event information and other important developments. Students who are interested in becoming more involved with any of our committees should attend an upcoming general membership meeting for more information. These meetings will be announced on the listserv and on this website.
Events and Opportunities for Current Students
The Social Committee hosts a diverse range of events throughout the academic year including our annual weekend getaway to Provincetown, MA, in the fall; OutLaw,the biggest LGBTQ dance party in Cambridge; opportunities to relax and schmooze with faculty; and low-key study breaks.
The Political Committee organizes events each semester to address important legal developments and issues relevant to LGBTQ people, including our annual Legal Advocacy Conference. More info about past events can be found here.
Lambda is in the process of rolling out a range of new academic resources for LGBTQ students. Planned initiatives include a 1L Mentorship program; a Lambda Outline Bank; a listing of professors interested in supervising LGBTQ-related student work; and a database of LGBTQ-specific scholarships and awards.
Lambda has also been able to send a contingent of students every year to the Lavender Law Conference & Career Fair, hosted by the National LGBT Bar Association.

Lambda’s Professional Liaisons will be organizing a number of events and career exploration opportunities throughout the academic year. Look out for networking receptions with firms and public sector employers; tips and referrals for securing summer employment; access to our alumni database; and events addressing the experiences of LGBTQ professionals within the legal sector.
