At the beginning of Winter Quarter, several law students who do not normally sport facial hair were seen wandering the Law School with five o’clock shadows, which then grew into various stages of stubble and beards.

The more they grew, the better their chances were of winning the Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. Mustache Contest. The contest, part of the Chicago Law Foundation’s annual charity auction, helps raise funds for law students who forego high-paying summer jobs at law firms to work in public interest.
