LSA Sponsored Events

LSA is responsible for several social activities throughout the academic year. 


LSA sponsors a Welcome Back BBQ and an End of the Year BBQ.  There is free food, drinks and games.  

POTFP, Over the Hump and Prom

Every quarter LSA hosts an off campus party, open to all law students and their guests.  These parties are heavily subsidized by LSA and include a drink package and transportation to and from the Law School.  We do our best to schedule these events around the 1L LRW schedule, and so they usually take place a few days after a memo or brief is due.

Party of the First Part takes place in the Autumn Quarter, usually the Thursday before Halloween.  Those wearing costumes are able to compete in a costume contest.  Transportation to and from the Law School is included in the ticket price.  Stay tuned for details about the date and location of this year's event!

Over the Hump is our Winter Quarter event.  Transportation to and from the Law School is included in the ticket price.

Prom, known at other law schools as a Barrister's Ball, is our semi-formal event of the year.  It is always held before exams in the Spring Quarter and cocktail attire is suggested. 

Study Breaks

During exam "season" LSA has surprise study breaks for students studying in the law school.  We order dinner or snacks and, shortly before the food arrives, we will lawannounce that there will be a study break in the Green Lounge.  Everyone studying in or near the law school is encouraged to stop by for a free meal and a nice break from studying!

Social Outings

LSA routinely purchases blocks of tickets and lotteries tickets to interested students who wish to attend these events.  Tickets are heavily subsidized and sold to law students.  Past events have included a Chicago Bulls game and a Second City show.  If you have suggestions for potential LSA social outings, please contact our social co-chairs, Kimberly Rhoten and Christine Harvat
