We were very excited to last week partake with CLSA, JLSA, Latter-day Saints, and Christian Fellowship in putting on Harvard Law School’s first annual interfaith conference, focusing on Faith & Legal Work on March 3. We hosted over fifteen speakers, including practitioners, professors, and students to discuss religious, ethical, and legal issues arising from the intersection between being a person of faith and a lawyer. If you’re intersested in learning more, you can watch here!:
This year, we’re very excited to introduce a new mentorship initiative, matching incoming Muslim 1Ls with 2Ls and 3Ls. We hope that this will be a good resource for 1Ls to smooth their transition as well as help students across years to get to know each other.
If you’re a 2L or 3L interested in being a mentor, you can fill out a brief survey to help us match you to a 1L here.
If you’re a 1L interested in being matched to a mentor, you can complete a short survey so that we can best match you to a mentor here.
Salaam! Samir Zaffer and Nimra Azmi are the Harvard Muslim Law Students Association’s co-presidents for the 2013-2014 school year. We’re both very excited to be serving in this capacity and hope to continue the tradition of community-building within and without the HLS Muslim community. We look forward to organizing numerous events this year, including a Welcome Back dinner in September, insh’Allah.
