Wine Mess, the Law School's popular social event, offers students a non-academic few hours at school before starting the weekend. Thanks to Law School funding, an extensive array of domestic and imported beers, wines, mixed drinks, soft drinks and juices are all available at bargain prices, and professors drink for free. The snacks are on the house, as is the music.
You may not receive any academic credit for attendance, but many alums will remember their Friday afternoons in the Green Lounge as some of their most memorable experiences in law school.
