More than 40 student organizations gathered on the law school central courtyard, "The Bricks," for the student organization fair on Thursday, August 22. The Student Organization fair is put on by the Inter-Club Council (ICC) at the beginning of each school year.
Participation in the fair gives student organization leaders the chance to provide students who are not members of their organization valuable information about what the organization does, what the requirements to join the organization are and how they can get involved.
Student Bar Association Secretary and ICC President, Sara Solano, organized the event. "The ICC is all about getting the student body involved so they can pursue their interests, both professional and social. I remember how overwhelming the beginning of law school is, so it was wonderful to be able to help our newest future lawyers find a niche to call home within the Miami Law community."
For many organizations, the student organization fair is the first chance for organizations to promote their club.
Noel Christian Pace, 2L and President of the Health Law Association remarked that, "the Student Organization fair provides a singular opportunity for students to learn about the varied and unique opportunities to get involved in student organization at Miami Law, such as the Health Law Association. Additionally, it provides first-year students with exposure to upper-level students who are excited to mentor and welcome them into the Miami Law family."
