Student Bar Association Newsletter

Student Bar Association Newsletter: Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Welcome

Fellow Classmates,

I hope you are all enjoying the change to cooler weather as we continue into the second half of this semester. This newsletter contains information about some of the big events sponsored by the SBA and other groups that will be going on in the next few weeks. Please look through and read about the events that interest you. To see what else has been going on with the SBA, be sure to check the website (http://studentorgs.law.unc.edu/sba/). As always, if you ever have any questions about the SBA or ideas to improve the experience here at UNC Law, feel free to let me or any of the SBA representatives know. Good luck to all of you in the remainder of this semester.

Law School Halloween Party

The 3L class will be hosting the annual UNC Law Halloween Party this year on October 31 at East End on Franklin Street. The bar will be admitting Carolina Law students and their guests from 8 p.m. to midnight for a $5 cover that will go to the 3L Class Fund. After midnight there will still be a cover, it just won't go to the law school. East End will have plenty of drink specials and traffic will be shut down on Franklin St around 9, so come early and support the 3Ls!

1L Feedback and Suggestions

The 1L team on SBA wants to get your feedback on how we can better serve you and improve the Carolina Law experience. If you have particular concerns, ideas for improvements, or just want to make your voice heard, please email us at unclaw2015@gmail.com.

Also, several other 1Ls are now serving on the SBA 1L Council. They are:

  • Brighton Haslett (Ardia small section)

  • Neal Inman (Broome small section)
  • Jennifer Nusbaum (Burke small section)

Please feel free to talk to these folks about any suggestions or concerns, as well. Additionally, we are still looking for one person from the Eichner small section to join the council. If interested, email John Harris at jeharri4@live.unc.edu.

Bar Exam Basics

Due to increasing number of questions about the Bar Exam, Student Services will be setting up an informational meeting with a member of the NC State Bar. In the meantime, this web page goes to last year's presentation and provides some details into the process and important dates to be aware of.
