Post-Graduate Student Funded Fellowship Pub Night!

ø

Get Free Drinks, Give Back

Support the Post-Graduate Student Funded Fellowship by stopping by Pub Night for some free drinks and to learn more about the fellowship and ways you can donate.

The Post-Graduate Student Funded Fellowship is a new, completely student-led initiative to fund public interest work by HLS graduates. It aims not only to support our fellow students but also to build a greater sense of community on campus.

Consisting entirely of donations by HLS students, once funded the Fellowship will be awarded to an applicant with a demonstrated dedication to public interest work and a specific project proposal who has been unable to finding funding elsewhere.

HLS: It’s a Dog Eat Dog World

ø

I hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather!  It is just in time for the Red Sox to be back in town.

Next week there will be a hot dog competition in the Café.  It is the Fenway Frank vs. the New York (Yankee) Deli Dog.  Both types of dogs will be for sale in the Café.  Each day there will be a trivia question posted at the station.  If you guess correctly, you will be entered into a raffle to win Red Sox tickets!

Please share this information with your group.

Have a great weekend!

Legal Food Frenzy Success!

ø

As you may remember, HLS participated in the Legal Food Frenzy from March 1 -12.  We were competing with other law schools and firms in the Boston area to raise much needed funds and food supplies for the Greater Boston Food Bank.  Our main focus, aside from supporting a well deserving cause, was to make a strong stand against the other law schools in the competition.  Well, I am very proud to announce that we solidly trounced them!
Yesterday, in a cermony, HLS was recognized by the GBFB and the Massachusetts Attorney General for raising the largest amount of donations both in total and per capita of all participating law schools! The other schools participating were BU, New England, Northeaster, and Suffolk, and none of them came close to our totals.
For the record, here are some of the totals from HLS alone:
– 39 lbs. of actual food collected
– $5,422.38 in online donations
21,728 LBS. in total donations (every $1 collected represents 4 LBS. of food the GBRF is able to purchase)
– Approximately 16,714 meals will be served by HLS’ donation
– 11.44 LBS. raised per student
Additional congratulations must go out to Section 6 for winning the 1L Section competition by raising a little over $300.  They will receive a bagel and coffee or pizza celebration donated by the Dean of Students Office.  Section 3 should also be recognized for being a very close second.
Further congratulations go out to the HLS Urban Debate League, who won the student org competition by donating $371.  They will be receiving a Student Government Pub Night in their honor.  Be sure you come out to that Pub Night to celebrate their (and HLS’) achievement.
We also have to extend a hearty hand of gratitude to the large number of faculty and staff that made generous donations to this great cause and to helping HLS to make such a strong stand in this competition.
Finally, thank you and congratulations to all of you! We may have gotten off to a slow start, but in the end, HLS students showed exceptional support and generosity, and both the school and the community thank you.
Of course, now this means that the pressure is on to retain the title next year.  Good luck!
Congratulations and thank you again!

Reminder: Blood Drive Today!

ø

The HLS annual Red Cross Blood Drive is currently getting underway in Ropes Gray (running from 10:00am – 3:00pm today). Though the drive is technically sponsored by the HLS Republicans, it is obviously a very non-political and campus-wide event. Come donate blood and save a life!
