Trivia Bowl Challenge
Each student organization on campus is asked to form a team to compete in the Trivia Bowl - teams may be composed of students from the organizations, and/or faculty advisors. Independent Teams of students, faculty and staff who wish to participate without club representation may do so as well.
The teams are asked fun questions on pop culture and the law, and the team with the highest points in the three-round tournament wins. The names of the winning team members will be recognized on the Trophy of Champions.
Public Interest Employer Fair
Hosted by the Career Services Office
Students can network with representatives from various Public Interest organizations during this afternoon event on the Promenade.
Students can participate in trainings and service projects designed to give students the opportunity provide quality legal services to those would not otherwise be able to afford it. All law-related activities and trainings qualify for Public Service Program hours.
