Oregon Law Students Engage in “Speed-Networking” at Roosevelt Rush
More than 40 Oregon Law students, faculty and administrators recently gathered for speed-networking at the Women’s Law Forum’s second annual Roosevelt Rush. As a twist on speed-dating, Oregon Law students engaged in speed-networking by pairing up with a member of the law school faculty or administration to swap stories about childhood memories, travel experiences and other ice-breaking topics. Participants were awarded prizes for the funniest stories after four networking rounds.
“This event allows students, faculty and administrators to coalesce as a community and connect outside the classroom,” said Oregon Law student and Women’s Law Forum Co-Director, Vanessa Nordyke.
Women’s Law Forum provides a network for women law students, increases awareness of legal and social issues that affect women, and actively promotes equality and fair treatment of women in the legal profession and in society as a whole. The organization is one of the oldest and largest law student organizations at Oregon Law.
