Are there LS clubs or social groups? (not law review..)

Postby jwinaz » Sat Apr 20, 2013 10:34 am

That are similar to undergrad clubs and groups?

I don't mean Law Review or an academic journal, but just a social group/club of some sort that students can join? If so, how similar are they to undergrad groups? Or are they more "serious" in nature?

There are clubs like the Federalist Society or the International Law Society. You know, they bring speakers and food at lunch time and y'all hang out. My first year, I was a part of a wine club, and we drank wine, so that was cool.

It's nothing like undergrad and they normally don't have activities outside of school (save networking events).

We have two law fraternities that seem to have members-only social events, although I'm not a member of either one so I don't know the extent of what they do.

There's religious groups, diversity groups, political groups (Federalist Society) and special interest groups (animal law, international rights, environmental). So there's definitely things to get involved in and meet people, but not really the same as undergrad.
