Law stu­dents to ben­e­fit from wine and cheese event

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

THE GROUNDS of the Nor­man Man­ley Law School is to come alive next Fri­day when the stu­dents as­so­ci­a­tion hosts its wine and cheese event.

This an­nual pri­vate soiree hosts mem­bers of the le­gal fra­ter­nity from across the Caribbean, var­i­ous of­fi­cials from gov­ern­ment bod­ies and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the cor­po­rate cir­cles, school staff and stu­dents.

It will be a night of fun, food and fashion as stu­dents daz­zle pa­trons with a fashion show, fea­tur­ing a wide ar­ray of tal­ent.

Ac­cord­ing to the Nor­man Man­ley Law School Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion, this year’s wine and cheese event will also serve as its fundraiser, pro­ceeds of which will go to­wards bur­saries and wel­fare fund and other stu­dent-based ini­tia­tives.

The stu­dents’ as­so­ci­a­tion said the ob­jec­tives of this event are to cre­ate net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents of the in­sti­tu­tion for prospec­tive em­ploy­ment with the at­tor­neys and firms present at the event, and to cre­ate an av­enue for the as­so­ci­a­tion to raise funds.

SHOW­CASE THEIR TAL­ENTS

Spon­sors in­clude Main Event, Ja­maica Na­tional, Nescafé, ATL Au­to­mo­tive, Pure Ice, Rain­for­est Seafoods, Dig­i­cel, Honey Bun, and Dacx Pro­duc­tions.

Mean­while, stu­dents will show off their act­ing skills at SILK, an an­nual play to be held at the Philip Sher­lock Cen­tre for the Cre­ative Arts, UWI, Mona. It pro­vides a cre­ative out­let for stu­dents to en­gage their peers and the wider pub­lic.

This year, the play is cen­tred around a highly rep­utable judge who finds her­self in a sticky sit­u­a­tion as she shares the cell of a love tri­an­gle with the two at­tor­neys in the biggest mur­der trial in the re­gion’s his­tory. As the jury de­cides the fate of the ac­cused man, she, too, must decide the fate of her own life and ca­reer, while somehow con­ceal­ing her af­fairs from both ad­vo­cates and the pub­lic at large.

The pro­duc­tion runs for two nights: Satur­day, De­cem­ber 10 at 7 p.m. and gala night on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 11. Gala night be­gins with cock­tails at 6 p.m.
