Older Wiser Law Students
OWLS (Older Wiser Law Students) is an organization for older students, second-career students, married and/or parenting students, and students who in any other way depart from the mold of the "traditional" law student - or those who would enjoy mingling with them. All students are welcome to join.
Typical OWLS events include meet and greet dinners and potlucks at law student homes in such exotic places as Brooklyn and Harlem, and panels with OWLS alums to discuss interviewing and life on the flip side of law school, starting out again in the career world, balancing family responsibilities and work, and the like. Family members are always invited.
We also convene committees to meet with OCS, Financial Aid, and other NYU departments to discuss and improve areas of particular interest to our members.
OWLS is led (and we use that term loosely) by a volunteer board with no hierarchical structure or defined roles.
