Scalia Law has a relatively small student body (about 500 full- and part-time students) consisting of some of the nation’s top applicants. But don’t let the small size fool you! Scalia Law boasts a diverse range of student activities:
*30+ student organizations, such as Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity International, the Moot Court Board, and the Black Law Student Association.
*5 student-edited journals, including the George Mason Law Review, the Journal of Law, Economics & Policy, and the National Security Law Journal.
At Scalia Law School, we have five journals. We have the George Mason Law Review. We have Civil Rights Law Journal, National Security Law, a Journal of Law and Economic Policy, and Journal of International Commercial Law.
The Trial Advocacy Association at George Mason Law School sends teams all over the country each fall semester and each spring semester. I've had the pleasure of traveling to Buffalo and doing some local competitions where we engage in mock trial competitions. And it's a really great opportunity to meet students from all over the country. To network with attorneys from all over, as well.
With the student organizations, I found what I was looking for. I was looking for community. I was looking for like-minded individuals to go forward and do some community service. Do some networking and hanging out. I know I'm busy. I have work and I have school, but being able to do something other than that has been immensely helpful, at least for my mental health and continuing forward with law school.
I'm a member of the Running Along the Potomac student organization. And we're just a very informal group of students who enjoy running and enjoy exercise. So it's been a great way to meet people who I don't necessarily have class with and just kind of talk about life outside of law school. And just kind of have that nice balance between work and life.
