Last year featured a saucy dance number from the Latino Law Students Association (LLSA), a Bollywood performance from the South Asian Law Students Association (SALSA), and a Lady Gaga–inspired theme. What's in store at this year's Michigan Law Culture Show? Find out on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. in Mendelssohn Theatre.
Co-chairs Tara Amin and Mai Denawa, both 2Ls, promise an energetic evening of song and dance representing the theme "MLaw Anthem," which, Amin said, "is about finding our collective song as the Law School."
Amin and Denawa encourage students, faculty, and staff to attend the show, which will feature performances by student organizations including the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association
(APALSA); LLSA; SALSA; Jewish Law Students Association
; Black Law Students Alliance
; Headnotes a cappella
group; and TJ Hooper and the Learned Hand, the Law School rock band. In addition, there will be performances from six professors participating in a partner dance, two students, and an independent student band.
This is the fourth year for the Culture Show, which is sponsored by APALSA. Its purpose, Denawa said, is to celebrate the "talents and passions" of Michigan Law students beyond the classroom.
Tickets cost $7 and can be purchased from noon to 1 p.m. outside the Aikens Commons until Nov. 8. Proceeds will benefit the Michigan Youth Opportunities Initiative
, which helps youth who are transitioning out of the foster care system.
