The Best Part of this Semester

By Diane, 2E

As the 2014-2015 Evening Student Bar Association (“ESBA”) President, I’ve been offered opportunities that have colored and enriched my law school experience.  I’ve been invited to leadership brunches and luncheons, in addition to a number of Q & A panels that I’ve been asked to participate in or moderate.  I’ve also been asked to partake in the interview process for a potential new faculty hire.  Overall, being a part of the ESBA is a great opportunity to meet professors, alumni, and fellow students.

Just last week, the ESBA held an evening alumni mixer.  Four alumni from the LLS evening program came to share their experiences and offer students their words of wisdom.  Amazing finger foods and drinks were served at the same time.
I remember sitting in the audience last year at a similar event and feeling impressed by the passion the alumni had for Loyola Law School.  Needless to say, it felt great knowing that I had networked enough within the span of a year to invite an alumni friend to participate in the panel this year and to be on “the other side” as the panel moderator this time around.

Being an active member of the ESBA is truly rewarding—but like anything, it is what you make it.  I’ve chosen to make the most of the opportunities LLS has given me.  As a result, I have come to know many of the wonderful professors and staff on campus as well as the alumni who are passionate about sharing their experiences with new generations of lawyers-in-the-making.
