New Organizations Join Gamut of 55+ Groups at Annual Student Org Fair
Miami Law's Student Organization Fair

The University of Miami School of Law’s annual Student Organization Fair brought The Bass Bricks to life with the sound of student engagement on August 30-31 as students strolled through the central courtyard to meet with representatives from the 55+ active on-campus student groups.

Some new organizations - Regulated Industries Law Society and Veterans Law Students Society and revived ones - If/When/How (Students for Reproductive Rights) and Caribbean Law Students Association - joined the very large fold. The two-day event offered a quick and convenient way for students to learn more about getting involved on campus and in the legal community. 

The Law School’s student organizations run the spectrum 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 hosted by the Inter-Club Council (ICC) 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,” said Janet Stearns, Dean of Students.  “We were delighted to have such a huge diversity of organizations and so many students from every class take part in the fair.”
