The Autumn 2011 Welcome Party for students entering Denver Law's Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy Program was held recently. The party, organized by Associate Administrative Director Lucy Daberkow, was held at Professor Don Smith's home in Denver.
The event has become part of the yearly schedule for the graduate program. It gives students an opportunity to meet each other as well as interact with various members of the faculty.
This year's party brought together a wide range of students, with at least 10 different countries represented.
The pictures on this blog posting reflect the fun and community building that took place during the event. Associate Administrative Director Lucy Daberkow said "it is wonderful to see the strong sense of camaraderie among the students in our program. International and US students form life-long friendships in our program and are extremely happy to be part of Denver Law's outstanding community."
