Legally Fat

Legally Fat is a student organization dedicated to amplifying the voices of fat law students and advancing fat acceptance. We aim to foster a safe and supportive community for those who experience societal, educational and professional barriers due to their size, and provide resources to help minimize those barriers. Through an intersectional approach to education and advocacy, Legally Fat trains future lawyers to recognize the origin of anti-fatness as anti-blackness, to identify the harms intrinsic to the legal discrimination of fat people, and to dismantle interconnected systems of oppression in their personal and professional lives.
