Amicus

Amicus: "a phrase that means friend of the court . . . someone who is not a party to the litigation, but who believes that the court's decision may affect its interest." — Justice William H. Rehnquist

We are a group of nontraditional law students as well as the spouses/significant others of law students. The purpose of this group is to serve the students by providing a social organization and social outlet. If you want a time to not really be concerned with the different types of homicide, or whether or not a citation is properly "Bluebooked," we may be an outlet for you. In addition, if you're a law student who feels that 11 p.m. is time to go home, rather than time to go out, we are here for you.
