Tradition of Public Interest Pot-lucks Continues

Posted by David Logan on 09/28/2012 at 04:02 PM

One of the fun, and unofficial, traditions at RWU Law is the Potluck Dinners at the home of Laurie Barron, the crackerjack head of our Feinstein Institute for Legal Service.  Once a semester, some of the many RWU students committed to Public Interest Law gather at Laurie’s home way out in the Tiverton boonies for an evening of food, fun, and fellowship.  Here are a couple comments from attendees at the fall ’12 gathering:

 The Potlucks at Laurie Barron's house are never dull! Always a great time to mingle with fellow law students and faculty members in a very informal setting.

As a 2L, this was actually my first APIL potluck, and it was definitely a success. I met many of the nice people who coordinate the Feinstein Institute, and many of the new students who participated in this event. Best of all, I enjoyed great food all prepared by my peers, and left completely full and satisfied!
