OUTLaw is Cardozo's longest-standing LGBT and allied student group. The group organizes meetings, educational panels and social events for students to meet, socialize, and advance LGBT rights issues. One of the most prominent events is an annual reception in which the group presents the E. Nathaniel Gates Award to notable Cardozo LGBT alumni. Past recipients include a Tony Award winner, two lawyers at the forefront of LGBT immigration rights, and the HIV positive attorney and his counsel chronicled by the movie Philadephia.
