Areas of Focus

Law and Sexuality

UCLA Law is a leader in scholarship and teaching in fields at the intersection of law, policy, sexuality and gender identity.

Law and sexuality is a field of emerging importance as activists, employers and governments grapple with historic inequities and uneven protections for different populations. UCLA Law's Williams Institute performs groundbreaking research in the field of sexual orientation and gender identity law, and hosts an annual moot court competition, speaker series, conference and journal dedicated exclusively to those areas of scholarship. Separately, LL.M. students can seek a specialization in Law and Sexuality, learning and gaining mentorship from top scholars seeking to advance the quality and extent of legal knowledge and public discourse on the topic.
