2020 Equity Socials

Equity Socials provide first year students with opportunities to meet other first year and upper year students who share their personal identity.

All socials this year are held in hybrid formats, with in person and virtual participation opportunities. Equity socials are co-hosted by the law school and affinity student groups. Upper year student hosts are responsible for organizing a location and inviting upper year students who will spend the evening meeting and mingling with first year students. The law school has a number of identity groups, only some of which have signed up to host an equity social. Below is a list of the identity groups that are hosting an equity social and details for registering and joining the event.
