Students Explore Spectrum of Opportunities in Clubs and Groups at Annual Student Organization Fair

Miami Law's annual Student Organization Fair brought The Bass Bricks to life with the sound of student engagement August 31 and September 1 as students strolled through the central courtyard to meet with representatives from the 50 active on-campus student groups. The event offered a quick and convenient way for students to learn more about getting involved on campus and in the legal community. This year, the annual event was held over two days to ensure a socially distanced and safe event for everyone.

The Law School’s student organizations run the gamut of groups focused on different philosophies, affinities, and practice areas to cater to the law school’s equally diverse student body. Organizations offer students the opportunity to explore and develop their legal interests as well as provide a venue to further connect with their fellow students and seek mentors to guide them through law school.

The Student Organization fair is put on by the Inter-Club Council at the beginning of each school year.

“The annual student organization fair is an incredibly important part of student engagement and community building at Miami Law. We were so glad to hold the fair in person this year. The energy and enthusiasm on the Bass Bricks were palatable,” said Amy Perez, Assistant Dean of Students. “We were delighted to have so many students from every class take part in the fair.”

Participation in the fair gives student organization leaders the chance to showcase what the organization does and the benefits of getting involved. For many organizations, the fair is the first chance to promote their club to new law students. In addition to exposing students to the varied and unique opportunities for getting involved, the fair also provides first-year students with exposure to upper-level students who are excited to welcome them into the Miami Law family.
