I am excited that today is Family Day! I know not everyone can be here, but I look forward to meeting several of you that can be here today. Margaret Barfield, who has assembled many Family Days over the years, tells me that we anticipate a larger crowd than normal today!
Registration begins at 8:30am, and then family members have the opportunity to sit in on an actual Civil Procedure class with their students. I sure hope none of the parents and spouses get called on in class today — surely you did your reading just in case! 🙂
Following class (and a short break), we will assemble all the families for a panel discussion. Dean Tacha will provide a welcome, and then Dean Cupp, Director Oliver, and I will talk about “Law School Life.” This will be a great time for questions, and we will do our best to provide some answers.
After the panel (and another short break), families will have the unique opportunity to witness the final round of an advocacy tournament. Two of our upper division students will square off in front of a panel of actual judges to see who will be crowned champion of this year’s Armand Arabian Advocacy Tournament!
We have a special luncheon planned for the families in attendance at 12:45pm. Following lunch, the final item on the agenda is the opportunity to receive a guided building tour at 1:30pm. Then, you will be free to enjoy a beautiful Malibu afternoon!
I hope to snap a few pictures along the way to share with those that cannot be here today. For those unable to attend, please know that you are always welcome to drop by for a visit whenever you are in the area.
