A Message from the SBA President

Leslie Puzo

This is an exciting time, and I personally know the importance of choosing the right law school. I must share that Carolina Law is not just a law school or a community; Carolina Law is a family and a place I love dearly.

Carolina Law Ambassadors (CLA) Summer 1L Social

Saturday, July 26, 8:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.

A fun event for incoming Carolina Law students will be at Southern Village this Saturday night. In the summer Southern Village shows an outdoor movie, and it's a great event that we encourage everyone to come out for.

This weekend the movie will be Godzilla (the newest remake!), and it should be a lot of fun to see on the big screen. If you decide to join us, don't forget to bring a blanket/chairs, snacks, and anything else you might want!

It is $4 per person (cash or credit) and they have a popcorn special for $1.25 if you want to have the full movie experience.

Southern Village is a family-friendly neighborhood so please feel free to bring your children, spouses, friends, etc.

As of now, the weather is supposed to be nice so hopefully no surprise storms will appear. The movie starts at dusk, and the link to the Southern Village page is included below:

Getting Practical at UNC School of Law

Carolina Law provides the kind of practical experiences that will prepare you to excel in the real-world practice of law.
