Our new Lincoln LGBTQ+ Rights Clinic will advance the equal rights and dignity of individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ through education, programming, advocacy, research, and legal representation. We see this as an opportunity to engage with prospective students from this and other diverse communities in addition to having an impact on policy reform.

Two gender-inclusive restrooms are available on the first floor of the law school. Signage in the law school indicates location of these facilities. These are accessible to people with disabilities; one restroom features a toilet lift for use by those in wheelchairs.
All students, faculty, staff, and guests to the Law School have a right to safe and appropriate restroom facilities, including the right to use a restroom that corresponds to the individual’s gender identity, regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth. In addition, individuals are entitled to use a restroom that corresponds to their gender identity without being questioned, harassed, or asked to provide documentation. Sex-segregated restrooms are available on each floor of the Law School and two single-occupancy, gender-neutral restrooms are located on the first floor of the Law School in the Chastek Law Library, one of which has a toilet lift for use by individuals using a wheelchair. Should any individual feel intimidated, threatened or unsafe while in, near, or attempting to use a restroom on the Law School campus, please contact Campus Security at (509) 313-2222 for immediate assistance.

During the 2019-20 school year, the Center for Civil and Human Rights partnered with the Lavender Rights Project to bring a monthly Name and Gender Change ID Clinic to the law school. The Gender and Name Change ID Clinic was a clinic that was open to the public, and which provided law students the opportunity to assist with transgender ID assistance.
Our recent launch of the Lincoln LGBTQ+ Rights Clinic makes us one of only a handful of institutions of higher education across the nation to launch such an initiative, and the first in the state of Washington and the Inland Northwest. The Clinic is developed in partnership with the school’s Center for Civil and Human Rights and supported by a generous donation by University Regent and alumnus Joe Lincoln, for whom Gonzaga University’s Lincoln LGBTQ+ Resource Center is also named. This new clinic, informed by Gonzaga’s Catholic, Jesuit and humanistic mission of promoting and respecting individual dignity, will afford our students the opportunity to protect and advance the rights of the LGBTQ+ community under the direction of a full-time faculty member.
