2/5/14: Student Organization Exposition recruits new members
Release Date: 2/5/2014
Tables lined the Transit Mall on Tuesday, Feb. 4 as student organizations recruited new members at the biannual Student Organization Exposition. Colorful tri-fold boards, cupcakes and refreshments fueled prospective members to sign up and get involved on campus.
“Students who are involved in a student organization do not just learn more about a particular practice area or issue,” said Assistant Dean Jennifer Summers. “They also make strong connections with each other, the law school community as a whole and the Charleston community.”
Student organizations provide opportunities for leadership development, professional networking, entertainment and community service events and often collaborate to sponsor events that bring life to the Charleston Law community.
Representing the Health Law & Bioethics Society was second-year law student Bill Daniel, “The best thing about Health Law is that it’s an ever-growing field and the student exposition is a great way to inform students about the ways they can get involved,” he said. “We have great speakers coming this semester and we are looking forward to adding new members.”
Representatives from organizations like the Real Estate Society, Charleston Law Review, Business Law Society and Phi Delta Phi were in attendance.
“We’ve had a lot of people say they are interested,” said Samantha Barringer, a first-year student and president of the newly established International Law Society. Barringer discussed plans to have panel discussions, guest speakers and study abroad information sessions this semester.
The Department of Student Affairs provides resources for organizations on campus. Questions relating to student organizations can be directed to Assistant Dean Jennifer Summers. Here is a full list of student organizations.
