Annual Events

Every year, Duke BLSA is involved in the following events:

Admitted Students Weekend
During Admitted Student Weekend (ASW), Duke Law School invites newly admitted students to visit and discover the school. The weekend is filled with opportunities to visit classes, receive advice from current
students, and explore the city of Durham. During ASW, currentDuke BLSA students provide lodging for admitted students interested in joining BLSA. Duke BLSA also hosts a congratulatory dinner and an exciting social event.
Mentor/Mentee Program
This program is a long-standing Duke BLSA tradition. Incoming 1Ls are paired with a second or third- year law student, who will facilitate the new student’s acclimation to law school. Mentees and mentors are matched based on professional goals and common interests. Mentors provide advice in many areas pertinent to law school, career goals, and life in general.
Black History Month
During Black History Month, all Duke Law students have the opportunity to attend programs/panels that provide career advice, present black culture and explore social issues affecting the black community.
General Body Meetings
This is a monthly event where the Executive Board informs all Duke BLSA members of upcoming events and agenda items. During General Body Meetings, current Duke BLSA students also provide timely advice to 1Ls in many areas, including finals, course selection and the summer job search.
Gavel Ceremony
During the Gavel Ceremony, graduating Duke BLSA students reminisce about their time at Duke Law School at this semi-formal event. They also receive a gavel as a send-off present. Duke BLSA would like to sincerely thank Baker Botts for sponsoring the Gavel Ceremony for the 2015 school year.
