Annual BLSA Potluck with Professor Lewis
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Oct 3, 2013
Professor Evelyn Lewis hosted the annual Black Law Students Association welcome potluck at her home last night. It was a wonderful evening with many students, faculty, and staff in attendance. Professors Vik Amar, Peter Lee, Leticia Saucedo, Lesley McAllister, Angela Harris, Clay Tanaka, Andrea Chandrasekher, Cappy White, Millard Murphy, Margaret Johns, Leslie Kurtz, and Miguel Mendez were there. Dean of Student Affairs Hollis Kulwin and Dean of Career Services Craig Compton were joined by Robyn Reid of the Financial Aid office. Immigration Law Clinic Fellow Jihan Kahssay also attended. We ate in Professor Lewis’s spacious backyard on a balmy September evening. Among the students in attendance were Ike Orjiakor, Laraya Parnell, Dominique Davis, Dia Kirby, Morgan Mann, and Katie Fowler. I had the good fortune to sit at a table with Irene Williams, who told of her wonderful experiences in the Sacramento District Attorney’s Office as well as educating the group about how everything is grander in her native state of Texas.
