As you know, we collect some student demographic data but we don’t capture some of these details so I am sending this to all of you so you can choose to respond as appropriate:
Older Law Students
We want to help to develop community for law students who have come to law school after working or pursuing graduate study in other fields. This group will range in age from late 20s and above but anyone is welcome. We held an event last spring and the attendees decided to adopt the name OWLS (Older and Wiser Law Students) a name used at other schools. Please email dos at law.harvard.edu if you are interested in joining the mailing list.
We’ll hold an OWLS Wine & Cheese Reception
Tuesday, October 4th
We have a student group (Parents at the Law School “PALS”) and WLS has a Mothers Network but we would like to compile a complete list because there are a number of times when we want to reach out to students who are parents to announce events of interest. A parents reception will be held shortly. Please email dos at law.harvard.edu if you are interested in joining the mailing list.
Musicians and Artists
We would like to start a list for law student musicians and artists for anything from connecting students for practice/performance opportunities to offering performance/gallery opportunities in the new space. Please email dos at law.harvard.edu if you are interested in joining the mailing list and please specify (e.g. play violin, paint) and let us know if we can share your info with other musicians/artists or if you just want to be notified of performance/gallery opportunities.
If you speak another language and would like to connect with other students for language tables or other events, please email dos at law.harvard.edu and let us know which language(s) and let us know if we can share your info with other HLS students or if you just want to be notified of language tables.
