BLSA Dinner at the Home of Professor Lewis
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Oct 1, 2015
We had a wonderful Black Law Students Association (BLSA) dinner at Professor Evelyn Lewis’s lovely home last night. A large group of faculty, students, staff, and alums celebrated the beginning of the new year.
Professor Lewis graciously welcomed the students, with special instructions to the first year BLSA students that we all were there to represent the entire faculty’s support in helping them excel in law school. It was a cool fall-like night with much good cheer and enthusiasm in the air. Among the faculty in attendance were Associate Dean Madhavi Sunder, Professors Jasmine Harris, Clay Tanaka, Floyd Feeney, Larry Green, Brian Soucek, Jack Chin, Margaret Johns, and Tom Joo, some with family. Assistant Dean of Admissions Kristen Mercado, Director of Financial Aid Shari King, Assistant Dean for Career Services Craig Compton, Academic Success Director Chris Ide-Don, also were in attendance. My superstar research assistant from last year, Laraya Parnell ’15, joined the festivities.
Thanks to Professor Lewis and the students of BLSA for a wonderful evening.
