EVENTS

ORIENTATION

Orientation will be August 21-23, 2013. The College of Law will welcome incoming students. In addition to a number of integral presentations from departments and faculty members, students will have the unique opportunity to participate in some of the College’s best traditions, including the Orientation Mock Class and the College of Law’s Back to School BBQ.

Students will also have numerous opportunities to interact with our second and third year students (2Ls and 3Ls) and will be assigned an upper-class Peer Advisor, who will be available to guide our newest students successfully through the first few days and weeks at the College of Law. In addition to the host of activities which occur as part of the Orientation schedule, student organizations are also planning several events during the evenings of Orientation and throughout the weekend prior to the start of classes to help welcome our incoming students.

DIVERSE STUDENT PANEL


Current BLSA members will participate in a Student Panel held for the incoming Class of 2015 at the College of Law on August 22, 2013. This initiative is designed to provide these students with an opportunity to answer any last minute questions incoming 1Ls might have about law school. This panel is to help incoming 1Ls feel more at ease and better prepared for their first days at the University of Illinois College of Law. It will be an informal event and students as well as professors and faculty are encouraged to attend and participate at their convenience.

DIVERSITY ICE CREAM SOCIAL

As a special opportunity for our incoming BLSA participates, BLSA, along with AALSA and LLSA, will host an ice cream social for the incoming 1L class and the minority professors and faculty of the College of Law on August 23, 2013. This initiative is designed to provide these students with an opportunity to become familiar with minority professionals that are supporters of the BLSA organization and provide guidance for the continued success of the program and its members. It will be an informal event and students as well as professors and faculty are encouraged to attend and participate at their convenience.

BLSA BBQ


On August 24, 2013, BLSA will once again host its annual Back to School BBQ. Get ready for a day of fun, relaxation, good music, and great food. This annual event has been a staple for BLSA for several decades. It provides the ideal setting for new and old BLSA members to fellowship and begin developing as well as continue growing that forever bond of support that this great organization is known for. Students interact in sportsmanship type games and activities that are selected specifically for team building and leadership development. It’s definitely an event that no one ever chooses to miss.
