Laughs, trivia challenges and a relaxed atmosphere marked a luncheon for Catholic University’s entire first-year law school class on Feb. 24. The meal provided an occasion for students to interact with their professors and members of the law school administration and staff in an informal setting, and get to know one another better.
More than 20 tables were set up for the catered luncheon. Each table of eight was asked to form a team by selecting a catchy name for itself, and then answering a dozen challenging trivia questions, including such head-scratchers as “how many U.S. Supreme Court Justices were born outside of the United States?” (Six). The responses were tabulated by table until a trivia champion emerged.
Now in its third year, the luncheon also offers first-year students a chance to discuss what their law school experience has been like, and to air any concerns or challenges they may be facing.
Welcome remarks were made by Dean Veryl V. Miles, and an opening benediction was offered by the Rev. Sarah Duggin, who is a member of the law school faculty.
