Fifty faculty members hosted admitted students at the annual open house this spring, a Richmond Law tradition for more than two decades.

This year, approximately 115 students from around the country came for a daylong introduction. From the Children’s Defense Clinic to the Institute for Actual Innocence, faculty and current students offered perspectives about clinics, externships, student associations and organizations, international education, and more.

“One of the most exciting experiences is the opportunity to meet with law faculty in what students fondly call faculty speed dating to see how many of our faculty they can speak to and engage with in about an hour,” Michelle Rahman, associate dean for admissions, said.

A highlght is lunch, when the faculty serve the guests.

The act is “a very visible demonstration that [the faculty] are at the law school to serve our students and support them in pursuing their goals,” she said.
