Courtyard Show@UWA Law Courtyard / 7:00pm / 22 February 2014
Courtyard Show is considered a legacy amongst law students and alumni. Having been run since before our lecturers can remember, and hosted in the Law Courtyard, it is infamous for fountain dancing, $3 drinks, and a raging dance floor.
The event is hosted on the first and last Fridays of the university year, and is the perfect opportunity to let off a little steam with your law school friends. At the beginning of the year CYS it is the perfect low cost way to catch up with friends after summer. At the end of year CYS, it is the only way to commiserate the beginning of exams. Either way – it is not an event to miss!
Due to the popularity of CYS, it generally sells out within the day. Be the lucky one to get tickets for you and your friends!
JD Valley Tour@Swan Valley / 11:00am / 8 March 2014
The JD Valley Tour is an event run in the second week of the first university semester. This year’s event went very well for all involved as it was the first time it has been run! A bus takes students around Swan Valley’s best wineries and breweries. It is the perfect mixer opportunity for JD students who are entering the law school. All students are welcome at the JD Valley Tour, and we encourage law students, both LLB and JD, to attend.
Break the ice in those first daunting weeks in the lush Swan Valley surrounds – there’s no better way to do it! Legal banter is a must, and no legal banter is great banter without a couple of glasses of wine!
