Law Students Share Challenges, Ideas and Clinic Secrets with the Dean

My most recent Dinner with the Dean was incredibly fun and relaxed - the upper-class students and I know each other well by now. The first part of the night we shared about the insecurities caused by the economic divide – the challenges of going to school when you feel you have fewer resources than your classmates. The conversation was actually started because Seton Hall Law is establishing a Food Pantry for students living with food insecurity. And that got us talking about resources for students who don’t have a professional wardrobe, for which we also have sources through the Office of Career Services.

Law Students Enjoy Dinner with the Dean

Posted by Kathleen Boozang on 1/28/19 2:44 PM

What a fun night I had last week with a One L study group from section A.  For those who don’t know, the first year class is always divided into sections that stay intact for the entire first year for every class – so essential that everyone gets along!  Most One L students join four or five others for a “study group” that helps each other with outlines, exam prep, and general morale.  So, this particular group is one of the nicest, most interesting, and eclectic group of people I have had dinner with in some time. 

One student is originally from Syria, though his father currently lives in Oman and his mother in Maryland – since the war in Syria he has become a libertarian – skeptical of government, seeking to protect his freedom from government interference.  And yet, he is open-minded enough to be close friends with his study partner who is a self-described socialist who majored in Economics at the University of Vermont and served as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer – we had a great conversation about whether Medicaid should pay for housing.  This section A study group is rounded out by a woman from South Carolina (who took her Syrian classmate home to experience his first US Thanksgiving) and a New Jersey native with a Master’s Degree in Political Science who works for his father’s construction company during summers.
