The UNC Law Music Club will be a social organization designed to provide the students, faculty, and staff of Carolina Law a chance to meet and celebrate their shared interests in making music of all kinds. Although welcome to non-musicians, the club is primarily designed to cultivate an awareness of musicianship (including both instrumentalists and vocalists) within the law school.
UNC Law School tends to attract multi-faceted, very talented persons. Thanks to this recruiting policy, many of students, staff, and faulty members at the law school are vocalists and/or musicians. Some make music as a personal hobby, and some enjoy playing with others in a group or band. Some are singers and song writers, and some are pure instrumentalists. Some play classical music, and some play blues rock, and many other kinds of music. The UNC Law Music Club will provide all of these persons a means of finding out who their fellow musicians/vocalists are at the law school, information on how to get together with these fellow music makers, and a number of opportunities to put their talents on display in front of the rest of the law school.
The philosophy of the UNC Law Music Club is that law school should be more than just reading and studying. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is a key to success while in law school, and the Music Club seeks to provide music lovers with an outlet of artistic expression amid the hustle and bustle of daily law school life. The Music Club will be marketed to all music lovers who currently attend or work at UNC Law School.
The Music Club is intended to be a unique compliment to the civic and academic student organizations at the law school. While these civic and academic clubs provide valuable extracurricular opportunities, they also often demand high levels of time and work commitments from its members. The Music Club will demand no particular level of commitment from its members. Instead, the Music Club will allow law school attendees to congregate and play music at their leisure, hopefully building some lasting relationships between members throughout the process.
