1Ls in the Community

September 03, 2009

More than 100 USF law students, faculty, and family members volunteered at Law In Motion's annual Service Saturday event on Aug. 22.

First-year students and Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Erin Dolly at the San Francisco Food Bank on LIM Service Saturday.

The event is held on the last day of orientation every year and is designed to introduce students to other 1Ls, engage them in community service, and train them to become ethical lawyers concerned for the common good.

Law school students and staff volunteered throughout San Francisco for the St. Anthony Foundation Dining Room, Glide Memorial Foundation, Presidio Stewardship (Crissy Field), and San Francisco Food Bank, packing lunches for the homeless and participating in other community activities. Dean Jeffrey Brand was also in attendance, and wrote about and posted pictures of the event on his twitter page.

Brand said that the large turnout of student participants proves the entering class values the importance of community involvement in addition to their law school education.

First-year students and Professor Julie Nice take a break while volunteering at Crissy Field.

"Studying and teaching law is a privilege that carries responsibilities," Brand said. "What does packing a sandwich for the homeless have to do with law school? Everything."
