The U of A Law Show, an exciting event of raw talent, pop culture references, and a hilarious look at the life of a law student and junior lawyer, was a huge success!
With something for everyone, the annual show, begun in 1996, combines music, acting and dancing in a show that raises funds for local charities. The Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters has been the recipient for the past two years, with this year being its last of a three-year partnership. The U of A Law Show has already contributed $55,000 to the charity from the ’09 and ’10 shows. For the coming 2012-2014 shows, a charity will be selected by the student body by way of a vote. To date, the Law Show has raised a total of $230,0000 for various charities throughout the years.
This year’s show Draculaw, was held on February 4th and 5th and involved 130 law students in every aspect from acting and dancing to organizing rehearsals and song selections. If you missed this year’s show, be sure to watch for it in 2012! It is sure to be a smash hit.
