Getting Out Older
GOO (Getting Out Older) is a student organization focusing on the needs of "non-traditional students" at WCL. Many of our members are second-career law students, returning students, married, have families, or have other extra demands on their time. Our membership is self-identifying and we welcome anyone who is interested in joining.
Our primary goal is to insure that law school is a rewarding and successful experience for older law students. GOO provides a forum for expressing the needs & concerns of non-traditional law student, as well as for sharing professional and personal experiences. We welcome families, spouses & significant others. GOO seeks to provide both a social and academic support network for our members & their loved ones.
Some of our activities include:
- Peer-to-peer mentoring
- Regular group meetings
- Lunch gatherings & evening happy hours
