Exciting news!

Miami Law Women President Sanjana Palla was recently chosen among her peers to deliver the Student Speech at Spring 2019 Commencement. 🎓🙌⭐️

Sanjana Palla is fierce, and she comes from ferocious.

Her mother, Prasanna, made the decision to uproot her daughter and husband from their home in Hyderabad, a tech hub in south-central India, to come to the United States seeking a better education and wider opportunity for their 6-year-old daughter.

Remember, the timed run begins at 8:45 and the untimed run/walk begins at 9.

We will start walking to the starting line around 8:20 am. If you will be late or cant meet us, shoot Radhika a text @ (916) 607-7166.

It's going to be lit! (& I don't use that phrase loosely)

RE: Hurricane Irma
We just wanted to correct something we misstated in our last post regarding the Zello Walkie Talkie App.
The Zello app will NOT work without cellular data service, Wi-Fi, or an internet connection.
The reason many people are still recommending the app is because it has group messaging capabilities that are said to be better than your device’s usual call/text services.
Zello operates like a walkie talkie or two-way radio. If you cannot connect with 911, Zello may be your only option. By tuning into specific channels, people who are stranded or in danger can connect with first responders nearby and coordinate rescue efforts.
Hope that clears things up!

With Hurricane Irma nearing Miami, we hope everyone who can has evacuated. For those of you staying behind, we hope you have all the supplies that you need and that you have taken all of the necessary safety measures.

If you are in a hurricane warning or watch zone, make sure to download the Zello Walkie Talkie app. In the case that cell services are out, this app will allow you to communicate with others. Tell your friends and family to download it too! The app is available on both Android and iPhone.

The following link has information on evacuation orders and shelters: http://www.miamidade.gov/emergency/

Good morning, it’s Election Day! Remember to vote Stephanie Cardelle for VP today! Good luck everyone!
Good Morning, I am excited to announce that I am running for Vice President of Miami Law Women! I am very determined, organized, and creative, but most importantly, I'm passionate about empowering women. I love being active within the school and taking on leadership opportunities. Even through the craziness that is 1L fall semester, I have tried to stay active within the organization. For example, I approached the current board with the sweatshirt design and worked closely with them to finalize the sweatshirt. I think this organization is amazing for empowering and motivating women throughout their legal studies and career. If elected, I will work diligently to create new opportunities for our members to shine and to be leaders in our local community. GO CANES!!
Don't have lunch plans? Come to OUTLaw's event in F109 TODAY at 12:30 for a great talk on gender identity and sexual orientation, featuring guest speakers from the YES Institute. Lunch will be served and this promises to be a fascinating discussion!
We hope you and your team can make the event this sunday ! We invite you to a workshop addressing the realities of violence. Leave your fear at the door as we learn self defense from Vizl Gergõ the creator of Scandinavian Defendo. It’s not a martial art, it’s the tools you need to suppress a threat.
