CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT  Not every top law school can boast an annual all-male pageant (or, as others like to call it, an "ironic beauty contest"). And not just any law student can be crowned Mr. Wolverine. In addition to performing several group dance numbers, contestants must deliver an impersonation of a professor and demonstrate a talent in the "firmwear" portion of the evening. The competitors are narrowed down to five finalists, who must then answer a question put to him by one of the judges. This year's Mr. Wolverine is 3L Stu Chipman. The Mr. Wolverine contest is proudly sponsored by the Latino Law Students Association (LLSA).
