For those of you who have not been spending your summers diligently following the YLS thread, I wanted to post something that Iagolives suggested to the YLS class since I think it's a great idea.

Those of you who don’t know, I’m going to be going to HLS next year and I was talking to a few of my future classmates and we thought it might be a neat idea if we could get a forum going (either inside or outside of TLS) where people at YLS and HLS could network, chat, and maybe organize meet-ups IRL every once in a blue moon. I’m interested in government and public service and, especially considering recent history, odds are we will be seeing each other throughout our professional careers so it might not be a bad idea to start now!
However, before we get going any more on this idea, we wanted to see if anyone in New Haven would be interested. I thought this would be a good place to start gauging interest. Any takers?
Some of the YLS people were afraid such a group would seem too elitist, but I'm all for it, especially if iagolives takes the initiative to organize things
Congrats on getting your section assignments. I spent 6 years at Harvard after college, including 3 where I lived right next to the law school (part of the time in the Gropius dorms that belong to the Faculty of Arts and Science). Harvard is a great place to spend a few years. I hope you all have an amazing time there, and I hope to meet many of you at the events that iagolives organizes.
If you have any questions about life in Cambridge and at Harvard, I'm happy to try to answer them. After all, I spent the better part of my 20s in Cambridge, far longer than most law students ever will.
